Technology Across the Curriculum Grant Applications - Fall 2017

The Technology Across the Curriculum (TAC) Committee invites all North Shore Community College (NSCC) full-time faculty, part-time faculty, and professional teaching staff to submit applications to develop a TAC project in the spring of 2018 with implementation in the summer or fall of 2018. 

Fall application materials are now available and proposals are due by 11:59PM on Tuesday, November 14th. No late applications will be accepted under any circumstances. Notification of awards will be made before the end of the semester.

There are two types of TAC applications: one for faculty wishing to develop online/hybrid courses and one for those wishing to develop projects that integrate technology into their curriculum. For faculty wishing to develop online/hybrid courses, there are two separate applications, one for faculty new to online course development, and one for faculty who have already developed online courses at NSCC.

1. If you would like to develop an online/hybrid course:

Please contact your Division Dean to discuss your interest in developing an online or hybrid course. Conversations around priorities for online and hybrid conversations will be occurring in Division meetings. Your Division Dean will then provide you with information on next steps for completing a TAC application.

The design and development phase for faculty new to teaching an online/hybrid course at North Shore Community College begins with a 6 week online course, Teaching and Learning Online. This online course will run January 2 - February 11, 2018 (for fall 2018 and spring 2019 courses) and May 14 – June 24, 2018 (for spring 2019 courses only). 
 
2. If you would like to develop a project integrating technology into the curriculum:


Apply for a TAC grant. The application also includes project ideas and the description of the TAC process. Please read all of the materials before completing your application. Division Deans and Department Chairs would appreciate an email letting them know about your ideas so they can support your efforts.

Please note:
  • The technology integration project application materials are available on Pipeline. To access, go to the My Northshore tab and click the Technology Across the Curriculum link (left column in the Faculty Resources box.)
  • Applicants need not have high level experience using technology, but because the TAC grant is becoming highly competitive, we urge applicants to prepare their applications carefully, making sure the descriptive narrative is thorough and clear. We are also, of course, interested in the applicant’s motivation and willingness to think about how technology can improve his/her teaching.
Finally, we would be delighted to answer any questions or discuss application ideas.  

We hope you will consider applying for a TAC grant and look forward to assisting you in any way we can in that process.

Terri Whitney, TAC Coordinator and Professor of English, and Andrea Milligan, Director of the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Innovation
