The Digital Education and Learning Technology Acceleration program is again seeking concepts that push the boundaries of teaching and learning through innovative use of digital technology. Proposals are due May 28 for awards of up to $75,000. Application information is on the Office of the Provost website.
For the 2019 round of DELTA grants, teams are encouraged to explore areas such as pedagogy, media instruction, assessment, instructional design, and student services, among others. Proposals must include at least one full-time faculty member from Hopkins, but other Johns Hopkins faculty, staff, and students can be part of the group. DELTA puts particular emphasis on ideas that involve cross-disciplinary collaboration.
The DELTA grants are made possible through proceeds from JHU's massive online open courses, or MOOCs. Over the past six years, Hopkins faculty have developed more than 70 MOOCs, garnering over 6.7 million total enrollments.
