At Illinois State University we define the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) as the “systematic study/reflection on teaching and learning of our ISU students made public.” This definition was created to include a wide range of research (broadly defined) on the teaching and learning of our ISU students that is presented, published, created, or performed.
ISU’s Cross Endowed Chair in SoTL requests applications for the SoTL Travel Grant Program - FY19. The program is designed to encourage public sharing of SoTL work related to the teaching and/or learning of ISU students. The program provides partial funding for travel to present SoTL work. Funds may be used toward conference registration and/or travel costs. This applies to a trip already taken (and not fully reimbursed) or to be taken, to present SoTL work this fiscal year.We expect to award 10-12 grants for FY19 across the fall and spring award cycles. Please note that faculty/staff are eligible for one travel grant (of any kind) per year. Awards of up to $700 will be available to those presenting SoTL research. Awards of up to $1000 will be available to those presenting at international SoTL venues.
All tenured and tenure-line faculty, non-tenure line faculty, faculty associates, and AP staff with teaching/teaching support responsibilities at Illinois State University and under contract at time of travel are eligible to apply. Proposals must meet the following requirements.
Applications must be received by 5:00 pm, Monday, February 18, 2019 and should include:
Recipients will be notified 2 weeks after the grant application due date regarding the status of their application. All funds must be spent and reimbursement paperwork filed before June 30, 2019 (note, if reimbursement is filed more than 60 days after travel, taxes apply).
