As part of the University’s Institutional Priorities and Strategic Framework, McMaster launched its first Teaching and Learning Strategy: Partnered in Teaching and Learning in May 2021. The Office of the Provost and the MacPherson Institute have partnered to establish grants to support the McMaster community with opportunities to engage in the implementation of the strategy. These grants seek to enable innovations in teaching and learning within and beyond the classroom and across disciplines and Faculties, elevate teaching as a professional discipline, and improve student experiences and outcomes.
Three grants are available to support educators1 seeking to implement innovative and evidence-based initiatives and projects which align with one or more of the following impact areas within the Partnered in Teaching and Learning Strategy:
- Encouraging Partnered and Interdisciplinary Learning
- Supporting a Holistic and Personalized Student Experience
- Fostering Inclusive Excellence and Scholarly Teaching
- Developing Active and Flexible Learning Spaces
