Faculty Engagement Awards

The TLT Faculty Engagement Awards program offers grants and staff support to enable exploration of innovative applications of technology to improve teaching and learning. Calls are open now for ideas related to 360° video. Successful proposals will receive professional staff support from Penn State's Media Commons, and a small budget, to implement your idea. The deadline for proposals is April 21st.

Apply Now!

Each year, several grants will be awarded around a specific theme, and faculty are encouraged to apply for these grants, which can cover technology, professional development or other resources that support the engagement. Each grant includes a multi-semester engagement with an instructional designer and technology support staff who will work with you to identify the most appropriate and effective applications of a particular technology in your class(es).  TLT researchers will assess the impact of this technology and share what we have learned with the Penn State community.

Request for Proposals

2017 Theme: 360° Video

Computer lab.

A wide variety of hardware and software are now available on the market that allows us to create high quality 360° experiences to support learning. Some of the work we see around campus includes leveraging 360° video to virtually transport students to destinations throughout the world, conducting synchronous ‘tours’ of spaces, and to create more authentic collaboration and video conferencing solutions. Do you have an idea you want to explore that involves the use of 360° video to impact learning at Penn State? We want to work with you to help make this happen!

Relevant Examples: Skype 360° Conference Call, Interactive concert viewing, Scuba Diving

Proposal Deadline: Friday, April 21st
