Teaching with Technology Grant Guidelines


The Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies (CTET), in collaboration with the Office of Research, provides core faculty members, and associate faculty members in partnership with core faculty, an opportunity to apply for a limited number of grants up to $1,000. Each grant is jointly held by a faculty member and instructional designer, or, in the case of inclusion of an associate faculty member, by the associate faculty member, a core faculty member, and an instructional designer.

RRU’s Learning and Teaching Model has team-based learning (TBL) as a core pedagogy. The 2015-16 call-for-proposals is focused on advancing our curriculum approaches, teaching practices and competencies in TBL. CTET and Student Services are working on an initiative, TEAMSWORK, and are establishing approaches to support curriculum, technologies, tools and services to better support TBL. CTET has a list of potential TBL tools linked below to support this call-for-proposals.


  1. Encourage innovation in teaching practice(s) that support RRU’s Learning and Teaching Model, specifically related to team-based learning (TBL);
  2. Support an evidence-based approach to wider adoption of TBL technologies; and,
  3. Promote collaboration between faculty, associate faculty, and instructional designers.

Projects are intended to:

    • Improve assessment of team-based learning practices
    • Decrease transactional distance using a technology-enabled team-based approach (Moore 1997)
    • Create authentic team-based learning activities
    • Increase team efficiencies and collaboration through the use of social media
    • Use collaborative concept-mapping tools or workspaces to support team activities/assignments
    • Map team-based learning activities beyond a single course, through the lens of program outcomes

Successful recipients are encouraged to contribute to the scholarship of teaching and learning by writing up the results of the pilot project for eventual conference presentation and/or publication.

A list of suggested technologies and their pedagogical underpinnings can be found below.
