  • Grants


Each year in partnership with other campus units the CTE offers teaching innovation grants designed to provide resources and support for faculty who are interested in exploring new and cutting-edge approaches in their teaching in ways that promise to enhance student learning. 

Global Carolina Curriculum Grants

UofSC’s Global Carolina seeks to further the internationalization of the curriculum of the University of South Carolina, preparing our students to participate in a diverse, interconnected world and to face the challenges of the twenty-first century.  To this end, it invites full-time administrators and faculty members to submit proposals to internationalize an existing course. The goal of these grants is to assist faculty in developing and implementing globally themed content to incorporate sustainable international education into the curriculum.

Innovative Pedagogy and Online/Blended Learning Grants

The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) invites full-time faculty to submit proposals for CTE Teaching Grants.  The goal of these grants is to invest in the creation of exemplary, highly engaging courses, offered either in an online, blended, or traditional format.  Currently, we are funding both Innovative Pedagogy and Online/Blended Learning grants. The Innovative Pedagogy grant is offered to support the revision of a traditional course. The Online/Blended Learning grant is intended to support the development or revision of an online/blended course.

GTA Teaching Resource Development Grant

Graduate students are invited to submit proposals for the development of instructional materials, modules, cross-curriculum assessments, or other resources that will enhance the quality and depth of undergraduate student learning at the University of South Carolina. The resource(s) to be developed will be chosen by the grantee, designed to be incorporated into a specific course or curriculum, capable of application and transformation into an array of disciplines and/or student learning levels, and shared with CTE for broad distribution. Grantees will be given pedagogical assistance by CTE’s Instructional Design team in the development of instructional materials and resources, application and implementation of appropriate pedagogical theory, and guidance in usage of innovative teaching and/or assessment techniques.
