Research Western, in cooperation with the Teaching Support Centre, has established the Western Research on Teaching Grant program to facilitate research on teaching and learning at Western. The purpose of the Research on Teaching Grant program is to support the work of all faculty, librarians and archivists to conduct research on teaching developments, innovations and practices that faculty members, librarians and archivists are engaged in. The aim of this program is not to fund the introduction of new teaching strategies, technologies or programs; rather it is to support research on such developments in order to examine their effectiveness and to contribute to the literature in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
Amount: up to $3000
