Announcing 2011-12 RFP for DELTA Large Course Redesign Pilot Grants

Target Audience for Award: NC State Large Enrollment Courses and critical path undergraduate courses (Traditional, on-campus courses. May have DE section but not required for award).

The 2011-12 RFP for DELTA Large Course Redesign (LCR) Pilot Grants has been released, with a submission due date of July 22, 2011. The LCR Pilot Grants provide financial and staff resources for faculty involved in redesigning courses by leveraging instructional technology. Through the DELTA LCR Pilot Grants, we primarily seek to help faculty and staff achieve the redesign of large introductory courses that are among the top 25 percent in enrollment, and/or the top 5 percent in enrollment in a college at NC State, and improve access to critical path courses that serve as foundation studies for students to successfully transition to more advanced study.

Three DELTA LCR Pilot Grant types are available:

Type 1: Large Enrollment Course Grant funds are for the redesign of large enrollment and critical path undergraduate courses. This is the most common grant requested, which uses instructional technology to enhance teaching and learning and increase access to high-demand courses.

Type 2: Increasing Enrollments and Cost-effective Instructional Methods Grant funds are for addressing the need to cope with increasing enrollment demands, and/or for investigating the use of technology to achieve more efficient and cost-effective instructional methods. Course redesign involves substituting technology for traditional development and delivery of a course.

Type 3: Continuing LCR Project Grant or Evaluating Student Success are for the continuation of a course redesign project previously funded with a LCR Large Enrollment Course Grant.
