AIF Category 2: Curricular Innovation Grants

In addition to fully funded projects, Phase 2 of the Academic Innovation Fund awarded Curricular Innovation Grants to 91 exceptional projects.

Curricular Innovation Grants were open to full-time and contract faculty members.

Grants for eLearning support course redesign incorporating blended learning, fully online learning or the flipped classroom. Grants for EE support the embedding of three (3) EE Strategies: Community Service Learning, Community Based Research and Placements. Grants for Internationalization will support the embedding of international perspectives/opportunities.

High priority was given to grant requests from schools, departments or Faculties that have documented EE and/or eLearning plans which identify priorities for embedding strategies within degree programs.
