On-Campus Summer Workshops
Three kinds of summer workshops are supported by funding from ISC:
- Mini-workshops (less than three days) usually focused on development of technological competencies or reading and discussion on a topic of common interest.
- Curricular development workshops focus on individual or collaborative development of specific courses and course components that the faculty member will teach within the next year.
- Teaching enhancement workshops, devoted to conversations about writing instruction, oral communication, information literacy, advising, or other topics of general interest to faculty members.
Requests for funding for summer workshops should be sent to the Associate Deans office for consideration by the Instructional Support Committee. In addition to identifying the kind of summer workshop proposed, requests describing a summer workshop should include the expected outcomes of the workshop, the anticipated audience for the workshop, and all of the potential dates the workshop may be offered.
Application Deadline: First Monday in February
Budget Guidelines for Workshops:
- Mini-workshop budgets may include texts, materials, and refreshments.
- Three- to five-day curricular development and teaching enhancement workshop budgets may include a stipend for leaders and participants, reading materials and refreshments.
Requests for funding may be submitted using the online form: http://www.grinnell.edu/offices/dean/supfac/summerworkshopapp
Proposals for Workshops that are of broad faculty interest and address practical pedagogical issues are particularly encouraged.
