"The CETL Teaching/ Learning Grant helped me bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical clinical skills for my students in Communication Sciences and Disorders. The Hearing Assistive Technology Lab provided a much needed service to St. Cloud and the greater community. Thank you CETL!

Applications Due February 22, 2017 at 2:00pm Expected Announcement of Awardees March 1, 2017 Project Implementation Spring Semester 2017 Final Budget Requests June 9, 2017 Final Project Report August 28, 2017 Campus Presentation and Display 7th Annual Teaching and Learning Fair
The purpose of the CETL Teaching and Learning Grants is to encourage and provide support for innovative teaching and learning at SCSU. We are pleased to be able to provide additional grants this semester to support projects that would impact student learning and success.
We recognize the timeline provides a very short turnaround for submission of a grant application. However, we are confident that many of you have projects on your wish list that you moved to a back burner for lack of support.
We hope you will consider applying for a CETL Teaching and Learning Grant to get that support.
A limited number of grants of up to $1,500 will be awarded to individual and teams of faculty and staff working with students on new or existing experiences that contribute to student learning with a special focus on our 2016/17 Husky Compact Dimension: Engage as a Member of a Diverse and Multicultural World.
Funds received may be used for supplies, student help, summer duty days for data analysis and assessment, and further planning activities and will need to be spent by June 10, 2017. Those selected will be required to write a brief report and share their work with their peers during the SCSU’s Annual Teaching and Learning Fair.
Teaching & Learning Grant Recipients
Augmenting Meteorological Learning Using Virtual Reality
Dr. Alan Srock
This project will provide meteorology students with immersive, 3D views of atmospheric phenomena. These novel methods of meteorological visualization will help students reach synthesis and evaluation of the atmosphere more easily and efficiently, which in turn will help their scaffolding as they progress through the meteorology program and out into the world beyond.
Peer Mentor Led Student Success Modules
Dr. Christine Metzo
Through this project, new first year students will benefit from the modules and activities created for them to address topics related to their transition to college. Peer mentors will learn how to collaborate with peers in a group work setting, learn how to develop helpful ideas that support their mentees’ success into real, usable modules that can produce results.
Film Production Workshop
The Film Production Workshop will allow students to test their interests in roles such as cinematographer or producer, and helps them build a small resume listing some specific production positions beyond the usual small film program titles of writer/director. Both the of the finished films will be shown at the St. Cloud Film Festival as part of the SCSU student showcase.
Building Mentorship in Career Exploration: A Club Mentoring Project
Dr. Shu-Ching Wang and Dr. Bill Lepkowski
In this project, graduate students will mentor undergraduate students from within the department to work with each other in mentor-mentee relationships to gain knowledge about careers in the field. Mentorship is effective in college student's personal and professional development, career exploration, and academic success.
Development of a Hands-On Approach to Understanding Protein Folding
Dr. Cassidy Dobson
The objective of this project is to assess if a kinesthetic approach to a complex topic in Biochemistry leads to an increase in understanding the underlying concepts of the thermodynamic principles that govern protein folding. The outcomes will be measured by assessment of student understanding and observing the generated protein model made by each student.
