Digital Technology Grants

In fall 2012, the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost invited applications from University of Minnesota undergraduate degree-granting programs for financial support targeted at transformational enhancement of their curricula and pedagogy through the leveraging of existing or emerging digital technologies.

Professor Christopher Cramer (Provost's Faculty Liaison for eLearning) gave leadership to the grant program. The process was extremely competitive with over thirty applications received, covering a wide range of projects designed to enhance the undergraduate experience. A review committee provided their recommendations to the Provost who made the final decision.
