This May, seven exciting new educational research projects were funded through the Learning Innovation and Teaching Enhancement (LITE) Grant initiative.
LITE grants provide support for experimenting with and investigating innovative approaches to teaching that foster deep student learning at the University of Waterloo. The program is composed of two kinds of grants:
LITE Seed Grants (funding up to $5000 for one-year projects)
LITE Full Grants (funding up to $30,000 for two-year projects)
The upcoming LITE Seed Grant deadline is June 1, 2017.
Every two years, CTE offers the the Facilitators Development Workshop (FDW) to ten participants interested in becoming trained Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) facilitators. These future ISW facilitators will dedicate a week of their time (40-hours) to their teaching professional development as they prepare to guide teaching colleagues through the ISW program. This year's FDW will be facilitated by Waterloo's Monica Vesely, Instructional Developer, Faculty Programs and Development, and McMaster University's Erin Aspenlieder, Educational Developer, Program Enhancement Lead.
