Kendall Center Scholarship of Teaching and Learning grants support faculty in projects examining teaching and learning practices in their discipline(s) in a systematic way by using systematic research methods and by making the results known to the campus community.
Such projects may be aimed at significant curricular reforms, designing new curricula, conducting research that informs teaching and learning at the local (course, department, college) level, or initiating activities that would improve the quality of instruction at Gustavus Adolphus College. The Kendall Center is especially committed to funding projects with measurable outcomes and designed to address learning challenges for students from groups underrepresented in the discipline or at Gustavus more generally.
This initiative provides support for eligible faculty to develop, implement and assess a pedagogical approach intended to address a specific challenge to student learning encountered in a semester-long course offered on a regular basis.
Funds for these grants are limited; thus, grants are competitive. Priority will be given to applications submitted by tenured, tenure-track, and continuing appointment faculty because of the long-term benefit their initiatives will afford the Gustavus curriculum. Funding decisions will be made by a group composed of the Kendall Center director, a member of the Faculty Development Committee, and a Kendall Center Faculty Associate.In accepting funds, awardees agree to share their findings with the campus community via the Kendall Center and additional faculty development venues as appropriate. Please contact the Kendall Center Director with questions about the application process or if you would like to consult regarding an idea for a grant.
