The Learning and Teaching Innovation Grant provides faculty, staff, and other service departments with funds and support for initiatives that directly align with the Learning and Teaching Framework and reflect the spirit of a polytechnic “learning-by-doing” methodology.
The grant has four categories of funding: 1) to learn about the framework and collaborate with your department; 2) to reflect on and enhance your current teaching practices and share your findings with your community; 3) to innovate and implement a new idea; and 4) to fund a back-fill for your regular duties. Please read the Learning and Teaching Innovation Grant Information Sheet [PDF] before you apply for more information about this grant—including funding caps for each category and calculation rates.
