To further promote the use of instructional technology, the TLT Center funds several internal grant programs and projects. These grant programs and projects encourage faculty to expand the use of instructional technology by providing the funding and support needed to investigate, test and implement new technologies in their field of study for instructional purposes. Grants are sponsored by Academic Affairs and the TLT Center and are offered when funds are made available. The faculty will be notified when these grants are available with a Request for Proposals (RPF).

The Curriculum Development Initiative (CDI) was developed as part of the University's long term strategic plan in response to a need for a program that would not only assist faculty with the integration of technology into their coursework but would sustain course development going forward. Now in its fourteenth year, CDI grants provide significant support to academic departments to undertake technology-enabled curriculum development projects to enhance teaching and learning.

A&S Online Course Development Grant
The College of Arts and Sciences and the Teaching, Learning and Technology Center (TLTC) are collaborating to offer on-line undergraduate and graduate courses to create more flexible course options for traditional and non-traditional students. The mission of this initiative is to redevelop currently offered courses to allow for their delivery on-line instead of in the traditional classroom. Developing these courses for on-line delivery allows our students the experience of taking on-line courses and assists non-traditional students in completing their degree requirements without the constraints of when and where the course is taking place.
