Grants, Awards, & Fellowships

Distance Education Grant

This grant is designed to support academic programs that wish to forward the access-oriented mission of our institution through distance education. The goal of the Distance Education Grant is for departments to harmonize the experiences of students and instructors across the many learning environments and physical locations of UW-Green Bay.

Teaching Enhancement Grant

The "TEG" provides funding for professional development activities or projects that lead to the improvement of teaching skills or the development of innovative teaching strategies. The Instructional Development Council issues two calls for Teaching Enhancement Grant proposals each year, one in the fall and one in the spring.

UWGB Teaching Scholars

The Green Bay Teaching Scholars Program, directed by Dr. Kris Vespia, celebrates and promotes teaching excellence and self-reflection through a year-long professional development opportunity. We welcome applications from the newest and the most senior faculty at UWGB.

UW System Teaching Fellows & Scholars

OPID's signature professional development program offers UW faculty and teaching academic staff a unique opportunity to collaborate with other exceptional teachers from across the UW System and from various disciplines. Fellows and Scholars are guided through the process of completing a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project with input from fellow participants and the program co-directors.

Teaching and Learning Communities of Practice

CATL coordinates Communities of Practice for faculty and staff to increase their understanding of a particular pedagogical concept or theme through regular meetings held throughout the year. Through regular meetings, community members are able to explore topics in greater depth than typical workshops, while receiving support and input from the community in course application.

Online Teaching Fellows

The Online Teaching Fellows program was created to support online instructors as they strive to make their online courses engaging, rewarding and challenging for students. The blended course covers a range of pedagogical, design and technology topics that are designed to prompt participants to reflect on their online course's impact on student's learning.

Student Nominated Teaching Award

The Instructional Development Council presents the Student Nominated Teaching Award. This award recognizes and rewards excellent teaching from the perspective of students.

Sustainability Teaching Development Grant

The Sustainability Teaching Development Grant provides monetary support for professional development activities or projects that lead to the infusion of sustainability into any aspect of teaching, including classes, labs, field work, and/or undergraduate independent research/study.
