CTL Awards

We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience.
John Dewey

As part of its mission to foster a culture of excellence in teaching and learning, the Center for Teaching and Learning is offering awards to faculty for the support of Open Educational Resources, Immersive Learning, and Technology Innovations in Learning and Teaching course activities. Awards will be used to help faculty to enhance a course addressing appropriate components that students would otherwise be unable to complete.


Proposals for awards of up to $1000 are being accepted from faculty and awarded on a rolling basis to support these initiatives within with in courses at Northeastern State University. Proposals will be reviewed by members of the CTL Advisory Committee. Awards will be made at least monthly or until funds run out. Faculty who receive an award through this program will be required to submit a final report summarizing the project and results that the Center for Teaching and Learning may include in its annual report and may share on its website.
