D2L Innovation Guild
Funding Call for Proposals
Members of the D2L Innovation Guild are pleased to announce a funding envelope to undertake research in Teaching and Learning.
It is an exciting time for Teaching and Learning. This funding will support research that proposes to answer questions and solve problems for now and the future. We are interested in research projects relating to the teaching and learning practice and/or new or enhanced teaching and learning technologies.
- Emerging Research – Funding awarded under this project type enables researchers to undertake research in an area that lacks sufficient background to apply to other funding programs. Typically, the outcomes of Emerging Research projects will be the creation of an early baseline of information that can then be used to support future inquiry and funding applications.
- Applied Research – Funding awarded under this project type enables researchers to build on learnings from prior research to help improve teaching and learning, and to further disseminate and share knowledge based on this application.
- University of Guelph
- University of Manitoba
- University of Waterloo
Notes: Funding priority will be given to project proposals that demonstrate cross-institution collaboration between the Lead PI’s institution and at least one other eligible Guild member institution listed above.
