Do you have a great idea for how you would like to use technology to completely transform your unit or course?
The Centre for Collaborative Learning and Teaching is offering several grants of up to $20,000 for technology-enhanced learning initiatives in 2016. Initiatives should enhance and extend the unit or course experience in VU Collaborate and fall into one or more of the following priority categories:
- From face to face to fully online where market analysis indicates there is an unmet demand, or efficiencies can be found for units that are currently delivered across multiple campuses, teaching periods or courses
- Active learning through technology-enhanced delivery including the integration of inquiry-based learning, professional and practice-based / scenario-based learning and simulations
- Multi-dimensional online assessment strategies that recognize the diversity of students and provide alternative options to allow students to demonstrate learning outcomes
- ‘Flipped learning’ where students access digital resources and undertake pre-cursor tasks prior to engaging in collaborative, mentored activities in the face-to-face classroom
- ‘Poly-synchronous learning’ using multiple channels of face-to-face, synchronous and asynchronous communication and activity simultaneously
- Learning analytics, specifically the use of data (trigger points) to personalise the learning experience for students and/or to provide feedback to students on their learning
Three application rounds are available, with applications for the first round due on Friday 15 April 2016.
Please read the attached Application and Guidelines document for more information on requirements and application processes.
