Hahn Teaching with Technology Program

resources to make the whiz-bang go

The Hahn Teaching with Technology program, supported by the Hahn Fund for Innovation seeks projects involving technology and teaching.

The application period for the 2021-2022 academic year is now open!


This funding period, in acknowledgement and celebration of our return to a face-to-face Fall Semester, we are dedicating a portion of the Hahn Teaching with Technology funds to support course development which focuses on enhanced face-to-face teaching with technology. Specifically, the Hahn Fund will provide stipends to engage in… 

UDL/DEI – apply universal design for learning (UDL) principles and/or diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) practices to meet the needs of all learners. For example…

  • Infusing mental health/wellness topics into the curriculum 
  • Designing anti-racist activities with digital storytelling tools

GIS – integrate the use of geographic information systems (GIS), data science and visualization, and other mapping technologies to deepen spatial thinking and analysis. For example…

  • Utilizing machine learning to analyze satellite images
  • Moving existing GIS curriculum to ArcGIS Pro 

AR – explore applications of Augmented Reality (AR) in education. For example…

  • Developing 3D visualizations to expand ways for students to engage content

OER – identify open educational resources (OERs) as a way to redesign the classroom experience. For example…

  • Creating online simulations
  • Using open/free course content on existing platforms

DoOO – incorporate Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) to promote online presence, communication and collaboration, and/or digital literacy. For example…

  • Enabling students to reflect on their curricular or co-curricular experiences with ePortfolios
  • Offering students a range of ways to represent their learning with blogs and/or wikis

Some funds will be reserved for technology-enhanced projects not falling into the above categories. 

Eligibility

All faculty and teaching staff are eligible to apply either as an individual or as a team.

Expectations

We would like Awardees to collaborate with us by doing the following:

  • documenting their project reflections via a mid-progress and final report
  • sharing the lessons they learned at an RITG faculty development workshop or event
  • consider sharing their project with the wider community through activities such as online communication, presenting at a conference, submitting an article for publication, or filming a project video for the RITG site
