Re:  Provost's Instructional Technology Innovation Fund (ITIF)

I am pleased to announce that funding is available for a new round of the Provost's Instructional Technology Innovation Fund (ITIF), a seed fund that catalyzes innovative initiatives that have an immediate and direct impact on U of T education and teaching programs.

The ITIF is funded by the Provost and administered by Academic & Collaborative Technologies, a partnership between the Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation (CTSI), and Information + Technology Services (ITS).

This year's proposed ITIF theme is: Re-Useable Course Content. This theme seeks to encourage the development of course content that can be used in a variety of different teaching settings, and that is ideally free of charge to U of T students. As in previous years, proposals need not be specifically tied to the annual theme; however, projects that do so are adjudicated accordingly.

Instructors and departments are encouraged to submit proposals by the deadline of August 2, 2013. For full details, please visit the ITIF website:
