SUNY announced a second round of Innovative Instruction Technology Grants (IITG) to be awarded to faculty and staff in 2013. These competitive, peer-reviewed awards of up to $60,000 will be allocated to demonstrate, communicate, and replicate innovations developed at Stony Brook University and other campuses throughout the State University of New York.
A detailed Request for Proposal (RFP) and online application is available on SUNY's Office of the Provost website. All Stony Brook faculty and staff are invited to apply for an Innovative Instruction Technology Grant, but please note that these awards will not be funded until next fall (Fall 2013) when campus budget officers receive IITG funds as part of regular University-wide program distributions. Multiple proposals from Stony Brook are welcome and currently-funded projects are eligible to compete for funds this round.
Each proposal requires a brief project narrative, budget, communication plan, and assessemnt plan. Proposals that demonstrate collaboration that can be scaled SUNY-wide are strongly encouraged. All project outcomes must be documented and openly shared in the SUNY Learning Commons to a level of detail that ensures innovations can be replicated across SUNY. Communication regarding informational webinars and application support will be forthcoming on the Innovation Instruction Technology Grants website.
The application deadline is March 1, 2013.
