By Staff

Funding is available as part of the the President’s Office for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: 2014-2015 President's Teaching and Learning Collaborative (PTLC).

Applications for the 2014-2015 cohort of PTLC Faculty Researchers are now being accepted.

Central to the work of the Collaborative is creating and publishing scholarship in teaching and learning that contributes both to theory and effective teaching practice in and across disciplines. To this end, each Faculty Researcher designs and undertakes an investigation aimed at deepening understanding of disciplinary pedagogy and related to an important issue in learning.

Faculty Researchers design, carry out, and publish research on a particular aspect of learning in a specific course. Each investigator is supported by a Coach and short seminars in how to do education research. Faculty researchers will receive funding totaling $1,550 for their research that may include a student research assistant and travel to present one’s research.

All application materials must be submitted electronically to by May 16, 2014.
