Following the great success of the EETI Augmented, Remote, and Virtual Experimentation Grants in 2019, the Engineering Education Transformations Institute (EETI) is offering new grant opportunities to promote online laboratories and virtual experimentation in the UGA College of Engineering. EETI is committed to promoting a thriving ecosystem of future-oriented engineering education programs at UGA. Furthermore, the current situation with COVID-19 and the connected online teaching efforts in the College point to the importance of online laboratory solutions to develop a sustainable and agile engineering curriculum including virtual experimentation options.
The 2021 EETI Augmented, Remote, and Virtual Experimentation Grants’ goals are to promote online and virtual approaches to laboratory-based education in the College, and to develop an innovative community of faculty around them. The grants are intended to support the initiation of both (a) teaching and learning projects that directly improve the experience of teaching and learning engineering in CENGR in the context of online laboratories and experimentation and/or, (b) research projects to a point where they are suitable for attracting extramural funding, based on pilot studies conducted within the project. Project proposals may build on existing online experimentation efforts in the College or may describe entirely new approaches.
For further information about the grants, refer to the 2021 EETI Online Lab Grant solicitation document.
For further questions and possible project ideas please contact Dr. May (firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline for complete applications is Monday, November 30, 2020. Successful applicants will be informed by December 15, 2020.
