The UVA Library is offering another round of Course Enrichment Grants — a small grant ($2500) to support faculty who would like to partner with library staff to enhance students’ abilities to seek, evaluate, manage, and use information and data in scholarly contexts, as well as create new types of media-rich class assignments. All funded projects will involve partnership with a team of library staff with expertise in the proposed topic.
Projects might seek to
- Enhance students’ ability to critically find, evaluate, interrogate, manage, and use information both within and beyond their field of study.
- Help students to conduct archival research, gaining competencies in finding, using, and interpreting archival and primary source material.
- Strengthen students’ ability to discover, ethically use/reuse, collect, manage, store, and share data from a wide variety of sources.
- Allow students to explore new technologies, such as video, audio, 3D, immersive, and maker-related, and produce course assignments in a variety of media.
Applications are due March 8 — see here for more details!
