The following message is being sent at the request of Provost Phyllis W. Dawkins:
All faculty who intend to submit a mini-grant proposal are required to attend this informative 2-1/2 day workshop.
We are once again sponsoring a “Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Research Institute” funded through the UNCF/Andrew Mellon Teaching and Learning Grant. We propose to host this institute May 16 - 18, 2012 on campus. It is a 2-1/2 day institute to expose both our faculty and other schools to the following select objectives:
(1) Increase faculty interest in teaching and learning through SoTL and Faculty Learning Community principle
(2) Provide consultant support to faculty for investigating and utilizing new strategies in classroom research as well as
(3) Increase publication submission rates for participating institutions
We are requesting that you join us in this retreat that focuses on tips for successful publishing. The goal is to assist faculty in submitting a research project for publication before classes start in August. We are asking that you focus on research that you have already begun so that at the end of the institute you would be ready to submit to a referred journal. Faculty Learning Community/SoTL mini-grant teams consisting of two (2) collaborating faculty members whose articles are successfully submitted will be paid a stipend of $3,000.00.
This institute proved to be a great opportunity for junior and senior faculty who needed the concentrated support to assist them in getting published. Dr. Kathy Burlew, University of Cincinnati, will once again be conducting the institute here at Dillard University.
We ask that you complete the attached application and return to Barbara Albert, firstname.lastname@example.org. Faculty members who have submitted an application and those submitting applications for a mini-grant are required to attend the 2-1/2 day research institute.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there.
