Projects ATAB has funded

Exploratory Technology Grant

The Exploratory Technology Grant [ETG] seeks to encourage innovation and exploration of technological prospects to serve either as a stand-alone activity or to serve as the foundation for a larger Academic Technology Innovation Grant. All full-time faculty members are invited to apply for an ETG. The maximum amount for an ETG is $3,000. During the summer, up to $1,000 may be used for a faculty stipend for work directly related to the project. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and award notifications will be made within 30 days. The project must be completed within four months, after which any unused funds will expire.

Academic Technology Innovation Grant

The Academic Technology Innovation Grant [ATIG] should bring new instructional and research technologies to Boston College or bring innovative approaches to teaching and research through technology. ATIGs should aim to be self-sustaining and impact a large number of Boston College faculty and/or students. ATIGs  provide start up funding, typically between $5K and $40K, although larger grants have occasionally been funded. Any successful project which continues beyond the two year grant period will require localized funding support. Grant recipients must agree to provide status reports as requested. All full-time faculty members are invited to apply for an ATIG.

ATAB Special Project: MediaKron Cohort

ATAB invites faculty to submit a proposal for developing a MediaKron project and to join a 1 year cohort of 8-12 faculty developing similar projects.  MediaKron is a web-based toolkit for digital thinking and storytelling developed at Boston College for Boston College faculty.  In addition to developing a project,  faculty will commit to participating in a cohort to collaborate and discuss pedagogical uses of MediaKron and ways in which it can enhance teaching and learning. The cohort will be facilitated by the Center for Teaching Excellence.  Participating faculty will receive a $2,500 stipend.  The cohort will provide a report at the end of the project outlining findings that will inform faculty and student use of MediaKron as it continues to evolve as an instructional tool.

ATAB Special Project: Hybrid Course Development Cohort

ATAB invites faculty to submit a proposal for hybrid course development and to join a 1 year cohort of 8-12 faculty developing similar projects.  It is expected that faculty will work towards making at least 25% of their course online.  Faculty should incorporate innovative uses of technology that go beyond the use of native tools already in Canvas (e.g. Panopto, discussion boards). Specific examples include animation, creative embedding of video materials, simulations, and interactive material for assessment.  In addition to developing a project,  faculty will commit to participating in a cohort to collaborate and discuss the use of innovative technologies in online course development.  The cohort will be supported by the Center for Teaching Excellence and will provide a report at the end of the project outlining findings that will inform online course development for teaching and learning.  Participating faculty will receive a $2,500 stipend.
