Grants

Augustana Grants Website


1) The Academic Affairs office is pleased to announce that we will continue to offer grants for Blended Learning and Community Connections course development. 

The first grant is for developing courses or revising existing courses to incorporate "blended" learning (i.e., utilizing a mix of face-to-face and online pedagogies to advance student learning). The second grant opportunity asks for more intentional connection between either (a) the humanities/social sciences and our pre-professional programs; or (b) a course in any discipline to the Quad City community.

You can read the details on the following link; the deadline for both grants is November 18th. Feel free to contact Margaret Farrar x 7313 with any questions.  http://www.augustana.edu/academics/academic-affairs/faculty-grants/internal-grants/teaching-grants
