Bloomington campus tenured and tenure-track faculty are eligible for these awards. Grant recipients will be expected to spend at least two weeks of full-time effort on their projects during the summer of 1997, for a course to be taught during the fall semester, 1997, or spring, 1998. Recipients will also be asked to participate in one or two group planning/working sessions during the summer, to be arranged at mutually agreeable times. A report outlining the implementation and evaluation of the course design or revisions should be produced within a calendar year of the end of the fellowship period. Assistance in developing and assessing course activities, materials, or teaching technologies will be available from members of ISS's Instructional Consulting and Technology staff.
Awards will be made to proposals that best meet the criteria of
1. An instructionally sound, feasible plan for addressing a clearly identified instructional problem or opportunity, through strategies which promote student engagement
2. Significant impact on undergraduate education (e.g., large-enrollment course, or key course in the curriculum)
3. Evidence of the instructor's effectiveness and commitment to the project
4. Creativity and uniqueness of approach
5. Evidence of departmental support (e.g., memorandum of endorsement from the department chair or dean)
6. Commitment for additional funds or resources, if any are required to implement the proposal (e.g., for associate instructors or undergraduate teaching interns)
