ETEAL RFP - Spring 2015
Transcript of ETEAL RFP - Spring 2015
All proposals for the current round of funding must be sent to ETEAL@uncw.edu by no later than 5:00pm, Friday September 25th.
All proposals must cc the direct supervisor(s) for all project members. Submissions which do not copy your direct supervisor(s) will not be considered for funding.
The current call for proposals is for projects which would begin in the Spring 2016 semester and beyond. Proposals for projects beginning before Spring 2016 will not be considered.
Preference is given to first time proposals. In the event that two proposals are otherwise equal, we will select the proposal from the applicant who has not yet received an award. Consecutive funding is limited to two semesters.
Proposals should be
no more than 6 pages
in total, including the existing 3 page RFP/Proposal Template
The core of every proposal is the outline of your proposed applied learning experience and the pedagogy that will support it. Be sure to clearly explain how the experience you're suggesting is new, innovative, higher-impact, or more effective pedagogy than standard practices. Examples of potentially good applied learning pedagogy include:
Implementing new technology,
Using flipped classroom techniques to engage students as collaborators in their own instruction, or
Field research experiences.
Other examples available from:
NSEE - http://www.nsee.org/standards-and-practice
AAC&U - http://uncw.edu/eteal/resources/HighImpactPractices.html
A strong pedagogy section consists of a clear plan for engaging students, supported methods and best practices, and a firm grasp of how the project will impact students now and throughout their academic careers. When writing a proposal, be sure that your pedagogical plan and instructional model is clear, that it involves effort beyond the standard expectations of your position, and that your methods have a strong rationale.
Use the funding table included on the RFP form:
Budgets can included the following expenditures:
Salary for faculty or staff,
Stipend for graduate/undergraduate students or assistants;
Materials or technology that will be utilized in the completion of the project;
Travel that occurs during the completion of the project.
Funds CANNOT be used for the following purposes:
Stipends or salary for non-UNCW employees or students;
Food or drink;
Materials that will not be in long-term possession by UNCW (no giveaways).
ETEAL RFP - Fall 2015
What projects can be funded by ETEAL-Supported Pedagogy Initiatives?
Successful projects will directly enhance and impact student learning. They may be curricular or co-curricular in nature and should also address the following:
Relationship to NSEE best practices in experiential education, the AAC&U 8 key elements of High Impact Educational Practices, or applied learning best practices in your field using examples from the proposed project;
New or innovative practices that will make this course or project different from a non-ETEAL applied learning course or project;
Have an impact beyond a particular class or activity in one of the following ways:
Sustainability to beyond this semester and/or transferability to other courses;
Impact stakeholders outside of your students.
Applied Learning Principles
Whenever possible, directly state how you will address the applied learning principles previously discussed. For example:
Multidisciplinary or cross UNCW Divisions:
Does your project involve faculty, staff, or students from multiple departments or divisions at UNCW?
What on-campus collaborations are required or could be encouraged?
Represent new or innovative pedagogy:
Does your project involve the use of technology to enhance pedagogy?
Does your project introduce a new way to teach in your discipline, possibly adapted from another field?
Have an impact beyond your particular class:
Will the project provide a service to another on- or off-campus entity or organization?
Will your students engage in volunteer work or provide a product to an eternal business or agency?
Sustainability beyond period of funding:
Is it possible to integrate this experience in future iterations of this or other courses without additional funding?
Will this project be sustained and how will you sustain it?
Funded proposals will be required to supply the following assessment materials:
Student work products that demonstrate learning/development on ETEAL learning outcomes;
Instructor critical reflection, or other input on process.
9/3/15 RFP Proposal Workshop
9/25 Proposals Due by 5 PM
10/23 Awards Announced
ETEAL RFP - FALL 2015
Examples from Fall 2014:
Biology faculty members revise lab experiments for "real world" outcomes;
Living Learning Communities bring academics to housing and residence life;
Film Festival for UNI courses;
Marketing competition for socially conscious business.
Examples from Spring 2015:
Oral history projects in P-20 Education;
Living-learning communities support;
Mindfulness techniques in clinical research training;
Using Bioinformatics to analyze data in marine biology.
Note that this is a competitive process and not all projects are funded.
ALTC Community Engagement
Second section of the narrative asks you to discuss your engagement with the ALTC. What counts?
May also discuss future plans for engagement.
A list of past events and workshops is available on the ETEAL website:
Your proposal narrative should address all 4 of the following aspects of your project:
that details the proposed applied learning project. Explain how your project will enhance and impact student learning.
2. Explain how you will incorporate NSEE
in experiential education, the AAC&U 8 key elements of High Impact Educational Practices, or applied learning best practices in your field using examples from the proposed project.
3. Demonstrate how your proposed project utilizes
new or innovative practices
that will make this course or project different from a non-ETEAL applied learning course or project.
4. Describe the
of your project: How many students will be involved? For how many semesters will the project or course be active (with the same level of applied learning components)? Will this project be sustained and how will you sustain it? Does this project have potential impact beyond the students involved and/or beyond UNCW?
All proposals must address the following 3 elements related to assessment of project outcomes:
1. Identify the ways in which your project outcomes align with the ETEAL SLOs of Intention, Application of Knowledge, Critical Reflection, and Evaluation of Impact.
2. Include a draft of the Reflection Prompts you plan to give the students involved in this project. Be sure to include both intention and final reflection prompts.
3. Complete the table included on the RFP form. Your student work products must address all four SLOs in some way. Note that while you must have at least intention product and one final reflection, you can have multiple products covering a variety of SLOs if you so choose.
