|Summer Mini-Project grant deadline extended to noon April 15|
The Office of Instructional Development and the Faculty Instructional Development Committee (FIDC) will fund a number of Summer Mini-Project grants to support faculty working on significant teaching/assessment projects that go beyond normal course preparation and can be completed in one to two weeks of full-time effort during the summer. Projects may relate to individual classes or to department/program needs (for example: designing a major class project; assembling web-based resources for a class or program; or analyzing data collected in conjunction with the department's assessment plan.) Due to weather related chaos the deadline for this program has been extended from April 1 to April 15 at noon.
Grants will range from $750 to $1,500, depending on the size of the project, and are paid as salary stipends. Applicants are expected to meet university guidelines regarding payment for faculty overload. (Note: Because of funding restrictions, work on Mini-Projects must be done before the end of the fiscal year, June 30.) The Faculty Instructional Development Committee (FIDC) reviews Mini-Project Grant proposals. Full guidelines are available at http://www.und.edu/dept/oid/funding_miniprojects.htm
