ARCHIVED: At IU, what is the TAG Program?The Technology Assessment Grant Program (TAG), created by the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology, provided one-time funding for the study of uses of instructional technology in teaching and learning. The winning projects serve as examples of good practices in measuring the impact of educational technology on faculty practices and on student, course, or program outcomes.
The purpose of the program, which was introduced in 2001 and ran through 2003, was to encourage faculty to study the impact of educational technology on their practices and on student, course, or program outcomes. The studies focused on experiences of faculty as they discovered effective practices for using educational technology to support teaching and learning. Studies also focused on research projects beyond the faculties' own teaching experience. Fourteen projects were awarded a range of $2,000 to $6,000, for a total of more than $68,000. Recipients contributed their findings about effective practices to the Indiana University centers for teaching and learning and to the Technology Assessment Grant Program web site as a repository for use by others.
