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 only provide start up funding, with a $60K maximum grant award. Any successful project which continues beyond the 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.

Application deadline was April 15, 2015

MediaKron Special Project

ATAB invites faculty to submit a proposal for developing a MediaKron project and to join a cohort of 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. Participating faculty will receive a $5,000 stipend, and additional funds will be available to the cohort to support project materials and resources as needed. 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.

More information on MediaKron and examples of its use can be found on the MediaKron website at

If you are interested in developing a MediaKron project or would like to learn more, please contact the ATAB Coordinator, Stacia Pathiakis at

The deadline for the submission of MediaKron proposals was April 15, 2015 and has passed.
