CALL FOR PROPOSALS
In October of 1994, Stanford President Gerhard Casper created the Commission on Technology in Teaching and Learning (CTTL) to evaluate the use of technology for teaching at Stanford, and identify strategic opportunities for the University in the coming decade to use technology to strengthen its teaching programs. Last year CTTL decided to address this challenge in one way through a request for proposals for innovative projects from the Stanford community at large. This competitive process for grants is being continued in 1998. CTTL therefore solicits proposals for "startup" projects that advance the goals of the commission, as stated in its mission. Specifically, we would like to identify projects that can leverage CTTL funds to produce infrastructure, technologies or markets for the use of technology in teaching and learning.
Eligibility, Deadlines and Dates
Grants are available to any member of the academic council. The deadline for applications is March 16, 1998. Proposals will be reviewed as rapidly as possible. Awards will be announced May 1, 1998.
Eligible Areas for Funded Projects
Specific projects of interest include (but are not limited to) the following areas:
Proposals will be judged according to some or all of the following criteria (as appropriate):
Normal infrastructure upgrades, project continuation funding, and projects which might be more appropriately funded from other sources are not typically appropriate to this competition.
Abstracts from five proposals which received CTTL support last year are available on the web.
Numbers and Amounts of Awards
The commission hesitates to limit creativity by defining strict funding parameters for proposals. Realistically, however, we expect to fund between two and ten proposals for amounts ranging from $25,000 to approximately $100,000 for one to two years. Followup funding may be available for succeeding years, but proposals should be self contained and stand on their specific aims for the requested years of funding.
Proposal budgets may contain requests for faculty summer salary, staff/student salaries, hardware, software, supplies and travel (no more than $1000 of travel). Normal benefits rates apply.
Proposals will be accepted until March 16, 1998, and will require at least 7 weeks for review. Start dates should be computed accordingly.
