Technology Fellowship Grants Program

TF_logo-image

The Technology Fellows Program is a mini-grant initiative that enables faculty to partner with technology savvy students to develop resources that enhance pedagogy, increase or facilitate access to course content, encourage active learning, promote critical thinking, or support student collaboration.

Full-time faculty and students are eligible to apply. Each faculty member receives $1,000 for project leadership and oversight; student fellows receive $4,000 for resource development and implementation. While faculty need not have specific technology expertise, they must understand how digital technologies could be employed to support their teaching objectives. Student applicants are encouraged to have programming or multimedia skills, or they must have a concrete (and feasible) plan for acquiring the skills required for their projects. Approximately 285 hours of work may be devoted to each project.

The CER staff are available to help interested applicants formulate project ideas and match faculty with student partners. Once fellowships are awarded, CER staff serve as liaisons to project teams by meeting about project progress, providing technical consultation, and helping teams prepare for a year-end showcase to share project results with the community.

A committee of faculty and technical professionals from the Johns Hopkins community reviews all applications using the criteria listed in the program guidelines found here in PDF format.

Applications for the 2017-18 grant period are now closed.  Funding announcements will be made in mid to late April.  Projects from 2016 will be listed below after this year's showcase to be held on My 9th in the BLC from 12:00 - 2:00 PM.
