In the spring of 2020, the College’s Information Technologies Committee will consider proposals to create, maintain and improve collegiate instructional technology resources to be funded through 2020-2021 (or FY21) student technology fees. The committee is soliciting a broad range of proposals including requests to renew or revitalize existing technology, or to establish new initiatives in educational technology.

Any academic unit in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences may submit proposals. Units with needs that can be effectively met in shared use facilities are encouraged to submit cooperative proposals. Single units may submit more than one proposal (including one-time or recurring projects); multiple proposals from the same department must be prioritized by the DEO. Proposals must be submitted by Wednesday, February 5, 2020.

TYPES OF PROPOSALS:

One-Time Proposal
The most common and preferred type of proposal. This category will include project requests that can be completed within one funding cycle.

Recurring/Multiyear Proposal
This category will allow for departments with complex initiatives to submit proposals that will support technology resources for up to four years. The intent of this category is to support the operation, maintenance and refresh of longer-range pedagogical concepts. This will allow the College to identify local strategic direction for future funding opportunities.

All requests must include a clear explanation of the role of the technology in teaching, including the specific courses that will use the resources and the enrollments in these courses.
