We have received the call for proposal for the 2018-2019 Academic Innovation Fund (AIF).
There are two categories of funding:
Category 1 support initiatives of Schools, Departments and/or Faculties to strategically embed one or more of the four indicated institutional priorities – eLearning, Experiential Education (EE), student success and retention strategies and internationalization within the curriculum – in undergraduate or graduate degrees.
Category II funding will support Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) projects.
The Glendon internal deadline for submitting the application package is Friday, February 9, 2018. Send your application to APAR@glendon.yorku.ca
Visit the AIF website to find the application forms, additional information and to see projects that were previously funded.
If you have any questions or want to discuss the application process or your projects, the eLearning coordinator Audrey Pyée is available to help you. You can contact her at email@example.com or stop by her office in YH 258.
If you are interested in redesigning or creating courses in an online format (either blended or fully online) for 2017-18, you will find the call for proposals to provincial funding here, via eCampus Ontario: https://www.ecampusontario.ca/Content/call-for-proposals-2016.
The goal of this bursary is to support course redesign and online course material based on three priorities:
(1) open content initiative, which includes online modules and textbooks as well as fully online individual course creation or conversion;
(2) new program development to give students more options to finish their studies; and
(3) online course development which helps with academic programs that may be difficult for students to complete.
While the university-wide deadline is September 6th 2016, we wish to obtain all Glendon application by August 26th 2016. You can submit it to our Faculty eLearning Lead, Jean Michel Montsion, via email by then (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please contact him for more information about the application process.
