2013 Innovation in Technology and Learning Grant Recipients

The Technology and Learning grant program offers competitive funding to Pepperdine's full-time faculty members to support and encourage innovation in the field of technology and learning.  The grant program has been established by the offices of the Provost and the Chief Information Officer, and is administered through the Technology and Learning department.  Last year, we received nine proposals.  This year, we received nineteen proposals to the 2012-2013 program, including at least one proposal from each school.

All of the proposals represented exciting areas of inquiry. A committee comprised of faculty from all five schools of Pepperdine rated each proposal and twelve submissions were selected as finalists to receive awards.  Given the number and quality of the proposals, the Office of the CIO decided to expand this year's grant budget beyond the $80,000 limit to support additional innovation in teaching and learning. The following proposals were funded for a total of $91,118:
