Developing Teaching and Technology at Xavier
Are you interested in using e-mail in your courses? Putting your course syllabus or class assignments on-line? Developing electronic presentations for classroom use? Producing an interactive Web site for a course? Authoring a CD-ROM or multimedia project in your discipline? Mellon grant funds for these and other faculty technology projects are available for summer 1999 and for the 1999-2000 academic year. The new Mellon grant is administered jointly by the Xavier University Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR) and CAT.
Funded summer projects will be awarded a $2500 stipend upon project completion, while 1999-2000 projects will be supported either by 1/4 release time for one or two semesters or a $1000 stipend, depending upon project complexity.
Examples of projects appropriate for summer stipend or 1999-2000 (academic year) release-time support include (but are not limited to) the following:
Development of a comprehensive course Web site, consisting of items such as a course home page, course syllabus, updated weekly assignments, annotated links for student use, interactive pages (e.g., on-line drills and self-quizzes), and electronic bulletin board (summer or fall-spring).
Incorporation of extensive e-mail discussion in existing courses (e.g., weekly student e-mails with instructor responses) (summer or fall-spring).
Course requirement of student-authored Web site projects (instructor must advise, train, and support students in project production) (fall-spring).
Production of a multimedia project for Web or CD-ROM delivery (summer or fall-spring).
Sustained, in-depth classroom research project focusing on the effectiveness of technology in teaching and learning (fall-spring).
Examples of projects appropriate for $1000 stipends (1999-2000) include (but are not limited to) the following:
Incorporation of limited e-mail discussion (e.g., student e-mail assignments twice a month) into an existing course.
Development and use of a basic course Web site consisting of the course syllabus and a regularly updated assignments page.
Use of an electronic bulletin board for regular student discussion.
One or two virtual office hours weekly via bulletin board chat.
Development of instructional courseware for use in and out of class.
Regular use of commercially available CD-ROMs for instructional purposes.
Adoption of spreadsheet or gradebook programs for keeping class records (assuming you have not used these before).
