ASSETT invites proposals from Arts & Sciences Faculty, Departments, and Programs for awards relating to the use of technology primarily for teaching and learning. The maximum award possible is $5000.

Faculty of any rank and GPTIs may apply. Unit chairs or directors must provide a brief supporting letter. Department proposals for equipment or software that may be used in teaching and learning are also welcome. For proposals involving renovation of physical space, please contact our office immediately for additional instructions.

All funds must be used by December 15, 2015. Funds may not be used for research conference travel, course buyouts, faculty/staff salary support, or projects wholly relating to graduate education.

Prior to submission, proposers may wish to contact ASSETT Senior Teaching and Learning Consultant Amanda McAndrew to discuss ideas or learn more about what is expected in a proposal. In addition, ASSETT’s Teaching and Learning Consultants and Technical Director will be available to provide personal help in preparing your proposal on March 18 from 2:30-3:30 in UMC Room 382 and March 19 from 10:30-11:30 in UMC Room 335. We’ve prepared a pricing guidance spreadsheet to help you with typical figures for various technologies and student help.

Complete the proposal submission form by April 6, 2015 . Any questions about the form can be directed to Joyce Holliday, ASSETT program assistant, at or 303-735-3813.

Proposals will be reviewed by a committee of department chairs representing each of the A&S divisions.
