CTL projects are more extensive partnerships with faculty members to create flexible tools and engaging learning experiences shaped to fit particular educational contexts. CTL projects often start with a project proposal from faculty.
All CTL projects focus on innovative uses of technology to support effective pedagogy and student inquiry. Our projects include visualization and modeling tools; interactive learning tools; real-time data collection tools; data sharing programs; annotation and study tools; media archives; training environments; and simulations, to name just a few. Projects emphasize collaboration, interaction and student activity. They promote better communication, personalization and the multiplication of spaces, both real and virtual, in which students are invited to study, research, communicate and learn.
Office of the Provost Request for Proposals
The Office of the Provost’s Hybrid Learning Course Redesign and Delivery grant program provides funding support for faculty who are developing innovative and technology-rich pedagogy and learning strategies in the classroom. Instructors are given CTL support for content development, instructional design, media production, systems integration, assessment, and project management. Over the past year, CTL staff provided support for the development of 24 Hybrid Learning and Course Delivery Redesign courses.
The CTL also collaborates with faculty across the University to identify grant prospects, obtain grant funding, and work on grant-funded projects that go beyond the walls of Columbia to serve the global community. The CTL has received $7 million of its own grant funding and has been a project partner in grants totaling over $36 million.
