Now Accepting Proposals for COIL’s Spring 2017 Research Initiation Grants


The Center for Online Innovation in Learning (COIL) is proud to announce a call for proposals for our Spring 2017 Research Initiation Grants (RIGs). These seed grants are designed to stimulate research and development in areas related to online innovation with a direct impact on teaching and learning.  Teams including faculty, staff, and/or students are invited to seek funding for the 2017-2018 academic year.

If you would like to learn more we have scheduled two, hour-long webinars to share additional information regarding the proposal process and criteria for selection. These sessions will be held virtually via Adobe Connect and can be accessed at Simply log in to the meeting space a few minutes before the set meeting time to join the conversation. More detailed instructions can also be found on the Using Adobe Connect page on our website.
