Congrats to the 2023-2024 DELTA Grants Recipients

DELTA Grants imagery

The 2023-2024 recipients (listed below) will receive $219,000 in 34 new and continuing DELTA Grants spread among 40 recipients. There are 10 academic colleges, the Biotechnology Program and the Institute for Advanced Analytics represented in this cycle’s awardees.

Two 2022-2023 Critical Path recipients and four Faculty Fellows will receive continuing support from DELTA for another year.

In collaboration with our faculty and campus partners, DELTA staff look forward to creating innovative solutions to instructional challenges and increasing student success.

As we leverage the latest technologies, apply research-based standards of excellence and explore advancements in instructional design, DELTA Grants enhance the digital learning environment at NC State.  

This year’s grant types include Course Design, Course Improvement, Critical Path, Exploratory and Faculty Fellows. And, with the university’s ever-increasing need for blended/hybrid/flipped learning since the pandemic, three of the grants will be piloted as a cohort this year with regular cohort sessions and individual mentoring sessions that guide instructors to work toward course design milestones at similar paces.
