Seeking funds for your experiential learning opportunity?

The Office of Experiential Learning announces a new fund to support Experiential Learning innovation across the curriculum at the University of Dayton. The fund will support all faculty in the implementation and integration of creative, high-impact Experiential Learning programs and activities in University courses. Up to five stipends of approximately $200-$500 will be awarded to faculty members each semester. The funds may be used for supplies, event fees, and/or student transportation costs associated with the Experiential Learning activity or program designed by the faculty member. Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaboration is encouraged. Up to three faculty members may submit a single, collaborative proposal application, as long as students in their separate courses will work together on the same Experiential Learning activity or program.

Selected faculty will be involved in an Experiential Learning community cohort which includes participation in a podcast series to highlight faculty innovation in Experiential Learning as well as campus conversation event in the Learning Teaching Center to acknowledge faculty work in advancing experiential learning at UD. Faculty will also be asked to have their students participate in pre and post surveys designed by the Office of Experiential Learning in an effort to understand the impact of faculty-mentored experiences on student learning.

Applications for Spring 2018 proposals will open in early September.
