Information Technology in Education Committee (ITEC)
Course Development Grants
for 2013-14 academic year
With funding from the Dean of Faculty, Information Technology Services, and the Center for Teaching & Learning, ITEC will award several grants of up to $1,000 each for Trinity faculty to enhance student learning with technology during the 2013-4 academic year. Our objective is to encourage the thoughtful use of technology to expand liberal arts learning beyond course timeslots and classroom walls. We welcome proposals from all faculty members on tenure-track or renewable appointments who expect to be employed at Trinity through 2014-15, including new hires who are beginning next academic year. Current ITEC members are not eligible.
