This is a guest post from the Office of the Provost:
The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce the T-CART grant programs, formerly known as the STEP grants, partnering with three separate campus offices to provide faculty with funding to advance their teaching, learning, scholarly, and creative work. All applications are due February 20, 2017. Recipients will be notified by March 3, 2017.
Summer Course (Re) Design
The Office of the Provost and the Teaching and Learning Collaborative (TLC) are pleased to announce a joint program to assist faculty wishing to develop new courses (or redesign already existing courses) that pursue creative and evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning at Wake Forest.
Whether through digital tools, or “hybrid” approaches that re-imagine class as a space for active and collaborative learning (e.g. flipping), pedagogical innovations provide many opportunities for creative change. These novel modes of education allow for the thoughtful exploration of new teaching methods and technologies, course designs, and strategies for promoting participatory learning. They can also result in a comprehensive change in the way the course is taught, and/or how students are given feedback or assessed (for example, using e-Portfolios for learning assessment throughout a course).

Blended Online Learning Development (BOLD)
This joint grant, sponsored by the Provost’s Office and the Office of Online Education, is intended to encourage faculty interested in developing high quality online or blended courses in support of the undergraduate mission.
Whether you are looking to create a completely online course, defined as those where greater than 50% of the face-to-face time is replaced by online activities, or a blended course, where 25% to 50% of face-to-face time is replaced with online activities, this grant offers compensation for the time necessary to design and develop a high quality course and ensures the assistance of an instructional designer and technical assistance.

Summer Technology Exploration Program (STEP)
The Office of the Provost and Information Systems are excited to announce the 7th annual STEP grants. This joint grant program provides funding for faculty summer projects to explore new and existing technologies with the potential to enhance teaching, scholarly, and creative work.
This is the opportunity for faculty to explore a range of technologies, devices, and software and to integrate them into their work. For more information on the grant including examples of technologies to explore visit the Call for Proposals for Summer Technology Exploration Program (STEP).
All applications are due February 20, 2017. Recipients will be notified by March 3, 2017
