Middle Georgia College Faculty Technology Minigrant Program: Supporting Innovation in the Teaching/Learning Process.
Halaska, Marilyn
Middle Georgia College started the Faculty Technology Minigrant Program to prepare graduates to be successful participants in a technology-based society and to enhance student learning through instructional technologies. Developed by the Technology Roundtable Committee (TRC), the program addresses the need for faculty expertise in choosing and using technology. The Request for Proposal is open to all full-time faculty, with a limit of one grant per faculty for each grant cycle. The 1999-2000 cycle funded 13 projects for a total of $64,000, including: (1) two online composition courses; (2) an online tutorial drop-in for the College Success course; (3) anatomy tutorials on CD-ROM; and (4) clinical use of notebook computers for care planning and patient teaching in Nursing. The 2000-2001 cycle funded eight such projects for $44,000, and the 2001-2002 grants fund eleven at $50,000. Outcomes from the projects are excellent. In many, student grades were significantly higher than they were in classes that did not use these new technologies. Student learning and satisfaction also increased. Information on the application process and a copy of the application are appended, as is the Faculty Technology Minigrant Agreement for 2001-2002. (CJW)
