Provost's Learning Innovation Grants
The Provost’s Learning Innovations Grants (PLIG) program was developed to broaden and enrich the learning experience of RIT students by funding faculty-initiated projects that enhance student learning. More than 200 RIT faculty projects have received funding since the program was initiated in AY 2000-2001.
The accepted proposals for the 2016 cycle were announced on March 18. You can see these in Previous Awards.
The launch of the Innovative Learning Institute (ILI) in 2012, and its charge to assist in the creation of exceptional learning experiences for students, led to a revitalization of the PLIG program to:
- Better support dissemination of results to RIT faculty
- Integrate funding with institute priorities
- Support the scholarship of teaching and learning
There are two types of PLIG grants:
- Exploration Grants are funds for "proof of concept" investigations into the development, adaptation, or application of a new, different, or untried teaching approach, practice, or procedure.
- Focus Grants provide funds for faculty to develop, apply, and/or research an innovative mode or model of teaching and learning that directly supports an RIT priority.
The principal applicant(s) must be tenured or tenure-track RIT faculty. PLIG 2016 projects can include visiting assistant professors, lecturers, adjunct faculty, staff, students, and other contributors.
