AC Course Development Grant
We are pleased to announce that it is now offering course development grants of up to $1,500 to assist in the design of an AC course. Such course development might build on an existing course offering, but which is currently non-AC in status, or alternatively assist with the development of a new course which has yet to be offered. Funding support may be requested in three categories:
(i) materials, which might include photocopying and printing, books and supplies
(ii) student hourly help, to assist with for example, digitizing materials (e.g., slides, maps, manuscripts, photographs), bibliographical and syllabi searches, or assignment-related research
(iii) general course enhancement, for example, assessment tool creation, social media assignment development, guest speaker honorarium, field site visits and transportation costs, student project support.
Apply via email: download the below file in Word format and send back the completed application (in the body of an email or as an attachment) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Multimedia Teaching and Learning Initiative Grant
The MRC and The AC Center are pleased to announce the ‘Multimedia Teaching and Learning’ Initiative and its ‘Fellows’ program. The fellowship will allow faculty and graduate students to enrich course instruction by working with media based resources from the MRC. And before the use of DVD’s is history, participants will learn how to create ‘clips’ from some of their favorite and yet to be found favorite DVD’s in the MRC. Members will participate in a one-semester fellowship and receive a onetime grant of $500 at the end of the term and an honorary certificate from the AC Center. Below are the expectations and responsibilities for the fellows:
Work to identify relevant clips from feature films, educational documentaries and/or audio based media from the MRC and Berkeley Language Center
Develop a familiarity with the LFLFC (Library of Foreign Language Film Clips) interface, including searching, clipping, metadata and annotation features
Learn how to embed video in bCourses
- Provide quality feedback to the MRC on the training program as well as any “lessons learned” to help improve instructor experience
If you are interested in learning more about the fellowship, please feel free to contact Gisele Tanasse (email@example.com(link sends e-mail)) and/or drop in during office hours: Academic Innovation Studio, 117 Dwinelle, this Wednesday (and every other 1st Wednesday of the month) from 10am-12pm.
