2013-2014 CLAS Advancing Curricula and Teaching (ACT) grant proposals are being accepted
The Dean and Associate Deans of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Colorado Denver are pleased to announce the 2013-2014 CLAS Advancing Curricula and Teaching (ACT) grant. CLAS ACT funding is designated to further develop a campus environment which supports and encourages approaches to teaching and learning that advance goals of the college’s strategic plan. This year, we invite proposals for projects related to “Experiential Learning” (broadly interpreted as any type of “active learning” or hands-on or real-world-problem-based experience) or any of several of the AAC&U “High-impact Practices,” especially collaborative assignments and projects, undergraduate research, or service learning and community-based learning . Incorporation of these approaches into large-enrollment classes is also a consideration.
The funding request limit for CLAS ACT Grants is $5,000. Permitted expenses for CLAS ACT Awards include salary for student assistants, research- or program/curriculum development-related supplies and materials, faculty summer salary, including associated benefits, (Salary Savings Policy will not apply), and costs associated with manuscript preparation and publication.Travel to professional conferences is typically ineligible for support.
Applications for CLAS ACT support must be received in the Dean's Office by March 15, 2013. The Dean's decisions on proposals to be funded will be announced by May 15, 2013. Please contact Associate Dean John Wyckoff if you need additional information about the CLAS ACT Grant Program.
