Faculty Pedagogy Grants

TLC Summer Grants provide incentive and support for faculty to reflect on their teaching, bring into focus the needs of today’s students, and envision innovative ways to approach their learning and improve and enhance your teaching and learning.  Proposals should indicate how faculty will develop a new section, element of a course, module, or activity (may be an academic activity outside the scope of a course). Applicants should make clear the difference in teaching practices that distinguishes the proposed plan from current/standard teaching methods within the department or within the field. The development of a new course alone does not constitute sufficient innovation of teaching practices. Please make clear the learning outcomes, the theoretical framework or educational model, and the resources to be consulted. 

Grant recipients will present at a 2022-2023 TLC event dedicated to publicly sharing developments with the faculty community. The presentations would be approximately 20 minutes (30 minutes including discussion) and focused on making the campus community aware of these ideas and innovations.  This presentation generally happens either towards the end of the affected course or after the semester the affected course is taught.  Recipients are also asked that their course and presentation materials be shared within the Moravian College community on an internal website.
