Funding Opportunities: Instructional Improvement Grant Program

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching (formerly the Office of Instructional Development) presents this call for the Instructional Improvement Grant Program. The grant program supports innovation, experimentation, and development of undergraduate curricula and pedagogy. Projects may be initiated by faculty, departments, or larger units. Proposals should address the specific needs of an undergraduate course or curriculum and explicate an appropriate and cost-effective response to a clearly defined pedagogical problem.

Two recent initiatives are aimed at spreading and sharing teaching improvements more broadly across campus (see the Instructional Improvement Grant Program website for more information):

  • Faculty Improving Teaching (FIT) Communities. These faculty communities of practice will be an opportunity for all grantees to receive ongoing feedback and support from fellow IIP-supported faculty members and CAT consultants.
  • IIP Grantee Reporting. Every grantee will be expected to present their project in some venue (which could be quite informal). An additional reporting requirement is to provide a list of other instructors or courses which might benefit from similar teaching approaches.

Please review the 2019-2020 Instructional Improvement Grant Program overview and application online.

Please contact at iip@teaching.ucla.edu with any questions or to schedule a consultation appointment.

Full Proposal Deadline: Friday, November 15, 2019
