Provost's Learning Collaboratory Initiatives

2016-17 Call for Proposasls

This year's Learning Collaboratory Initiatives include the Curriculum Redesign Award, the CSU Learning Collaboratory Faculty Fellows Award, and the Teaching Enhancement Award.

These awards are being offered as part of CSU's Student Success Initiative 2, a coordinated effort to help students learn more effectively by redesigning curricula and instructional approaches.

All three initiatives promote rigorous, rewarding learning and academic achievement. Successful proposals will outline projects that foster robust, integrative, and/or self-regulated learning.

Supplemental Awards

A supplement to the first two awards, the Center for the Analytics of Learning and Teaching (C-ALT) Fellowship is also available. The C-ALT Fellowship supports projects that substantively incorporate analytics-driven design.

Who is eligible?

All faculty, tenure-line and non-tenure track faculty, are eligible to lead projects. Project teams may include graduate students, staff members, and undergraduate research assistants, as well as faculty members and administrators.
