DEADLINE EXTENDED: Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Program applications now open

Program advances UM’s commitment to teaching and learning excellence

April 8, 2020 — 

The University of Manitoba (UM)’s Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Program was announced in January 2020. The Program will provide opportunities for professors, instructors and librarians to engage in meaningful projects that increase knowledge in pedagogy in higher education and enhance the learning experience and success of UM students.

Given the impact of COVID-19 on our teaching community, the deadline has been extended to April 24, 2020.

The Program offers four funding categories:

  • Teaching and Learning Seed Project: This program provides seed funding for projects that influence student learning, explore new pedagogical approach and the impact of learning, and advance the scholarship of teaching and learning.
  • Teaching and Learning Major Project: This program supports initiatives that influence student learning, are multidisciplinary and may span across faculties, colleges or schools.
  • Teaching Scholar: This program will support three (3) tenure-track faculty members who will dedicate 40 per cent of their time over one term to develop and execute a personal teaching and learning project or participate in an existing Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning project.
  • Teaching Fellow: This program will support one (1) tenured faculty member who will dedicate up to 50 per cent of their time for a two-year term to focus their time on achieving educational excellence, especially in post-secondary education.

For guidelines and eligibility criteria, visit the Provost and Vice-President (Academic)’s Awards and Funding Opportunities page.
