In On-Going Efforts to Support Collaboration, LVAIC Offers Micro-Grants
October 26, 2018, @ 10:09 AM
As part of the mission to utilize collaboration to support new initiatives that maximize resources, LVAIC issues micro-grants. Each year, around the beginning of December, LVAIC offers a call for proposals for faculty and staff to request LVAIC funding and support on collaborative initiatives with the LVAIC Collaborative Funding program.
The LVAIC Collaborative Funding program provides resources to groups within the LVAIC community who, through collaboration, wish to engage in activities that advance LVAIC’s priorities. The proposed activities should explore new and innovative ideas, broaden audience inclusion, and/or maximize the sharing of resources and experiences across LVAIC community.
Types of Activities Funded may include but are not limited to:
- Emerging collaborative learning communities (Communities of Practices
- Innovative teaching and learning strategies
- Collaborative certificate and course creation
- Innovative resource efficiencies
In 2017-2018, LVAIC granted around $40,000 across 17 programs. These programs impacted 1,515 students, 180 faculty, and 142 staff. This is around 10% of the entire LVAIC community collaborating on their own self-started initiatives. This participation is a 36.2% increase from the 2016-2018 funding cycle, as more major programs began this year. As more new initiatives arise, we anticipate this impact to grow every year.
As in previous years, the proposals will be reviewed by various leadership members from across the six LVAIC campuses. Content in the proposal submission will be reviewed against proposal evaluation criteria. For more information about the proposal process, visit the LVAIC Funded Program website page. More information will accompany the official call for proposals in December 2018.LVAIC Retirement Seminar Series Kicks Off with Identity Theft and Fraud Session » « 2018 LVAIC Teagle Hybrid Learning Program: RFP
