Rosenkranz Awards Information Session
Rosenkranz Awards support significant teaching interventions that enhance student learning. Awards are designed to promote sustainable, scalable ideas that cultivate effective student engagement in the classroom.
The Poorvu Center is committed to honoring the many forms of excellent teaching, recognizing that teaching effectiveness is not reliant on digital forms. In past years the Rosenkranz Awards funded teaching projects with a digital component to comply with a gift indenture. We have now diversified the funding for these projects, and this year we welcome proposals of all kinds.
Successful proposals envision opportunities for instructors to emphasize or significantly develop learning experiences for students that align with central learning goal(s) for an existing course.
Poorvu Center staff will discuss applicants’ proposed interventions and ask clarifying questions. We strongly recommend participation in an information session or an individual consultation prior to submitting a proposal. Group sessions take place on:
Oct 15, 2019 (Poorvu Center 118A, 9:00 – 10:00am)
Nov 4, 2019 (Poorvu Center 118A, 3:00 – 4:00pm)
Dec 2, 2019 (Poorvu Center 118A, 11:00 – 12:00pm)
Information sessions will explain elements of a successful proposal and answer questions from interested applicants. Attendees may consult with Poorvu Center staff about their project ideas.
