The Distance Learning Center (DLC) and the Online Community of Practice (CoP) Steering Committee put out calls for applications for Distance Learning (DL) Professional Development and Travel funds for each fiscal year, which ends on June 30. These funds should be spent by then. Requests of up to $1,000 will be considered. These funds don't have to be used for a DL conference. They just need to be used for something that will enhance your DL course(s).
You are eligible to apply for these funds if you are a member of the UW-Superior faculty or teaching academic staff, and you have recently taught, are currently teaching, or are being scheduled to teach an online course through the DLC. Download the application form, below, for details.
The initial deadline for applying for funds for this fiscal year was last spring. The current application deadline is Friday, December 4. If funds remain, there will be another call for applications in December, with a deadline of February 1.
To apply, save the attached application form to your computer, type into it, save a copy for yourself, and email a copy to Karen Plass (kplass@...). (You can save your partially completed form, and complete it in several sessions, if you like). We changed it from a web form to a three-page PDF document, to make it easier for you.
Requests received by December 4 will be reviewed that week. Decisions will be made and communicated prior to the end of this semester.
Requests received after December 4 will be saved for the February 1 deadline. Those requests will be reviewed during the first week of February, with decisions contingent on the amount of funding that remains available.
The Online Community of Practice Steering Committee is pleased to announce the grants listed below.
Recipients are expected to share what they've learned, presented, or will present, within six months of the event for which they receive funding. To do this, recipients typically submit a one-page reflection paper, share their conference PowerPoint or video, or give a presentation on campus.
