Primary UITS contacts: Anastasia Morrone, Beverly Teach, Kathryn Propst

Completed: February 21, 2011

Description: "New Pedagogies, New Technologies: Learning Spaces in the 21st Century" is a faculty grant program at Indiana University Bloomington sponsored by University Information Technology Services and the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education. The program will fund proposals that promise to combine pedagogy, information technology, and physical and virtual space to enhance teaching and learning. It offers funding to support course or curriculum redesign that includes rethinking how courses are taught, how technology can enhance the teaching and learning processes, and how classroom and learning space designs can support new teaching practices.

Outcome: Grants will be awarded in mid-February 2010, and recipients will have the opportunity to design their innovative learning spaces and teach their "transformed" courses in these spaces during (and beyond) the fall 2010 semester.

Milestones and status:

  • Information sessions for interested faculty, schools, and departments were held October 12 and 13, 2009.
  • Final grant proposals were due by 5pm, January 26, 2010. Eight proposals were received.
  • Grants were awarded in mid-February 2010.
  • Three projects were selected for funding. UITS and OVPUE staff are working with the recipients on their course redesigns and technology enhancements. The projects are:
    • 21st Century Learning Spaces for a Human-Centered Computing Course Sequence: New Pedagogies, New Technologies in the School of Informatics and Computing; Martin A. Siegel
    • School of Journalism Expands Media Literacy; Shannon E. Martin, Emily Metzgar and Hans Ibold
    • Transforming Teaching and Learning in a Physiology Course with Improved Spaces, Technology, and Information Fluency Integration; Martin Ronan, Richard Mynark, and Andrew Notebaert (Medical Sciences) and Chanitra Bishop and Brian Winterman (Libraries)
  • In late September 2010, project team members visited teaching and learning environments, and met with faculty at Duke University and North Carolina State University.
  • The project teams implemented several course redesigns and enhancements in fall 2010. The courses are being further modified in the spring 2011 semester. Project teams are collecting data on student learning and engagement in order to share their results with others.

Benefits: Successful projects will enhance the teaching and learning environment at Indiana University and will result in findings that will be disseminated within IU and to the larger academic community.

Client impact: This grant program will provide faculty with funds to support course buyouts, summer stipends, graduate student support or related expenses to give them time and support to accomplish their course/curriculum redesign. It will also fund learning technologies to enhance and transform classroom spaces. Courses that are redesigned as a result of these grants will engage students more fully and should foster deeper student learning.

Project team: The Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL) and Classroom Technology Services (CTS)
