The Provost’s Office is pleased to announce a request for proposals for Digital Education & Learning Technology Acceleration (DELTA) grants to support Johns Hopkins faculty, staff, and students who require additional funding to develop, implement, and evaluate innovative digital education initiatives with potential to enhance the Johns Hopkins online and on-campus teaching and learning enterprise.
Proposals for DELTA grants will be reviewed by the Office of the Provost and a committee composed of representatives from each school. Up to five proposals are expected to be funded in 2021.
In keeping with the university’s stated priorities, the Provost’s Office is particularly interested in encouraging work that advances cross-disciplinary and cross-divisional collaboration, individual excellence, commitment to our communities, institution building, broad diversity within our community, and an environment that allows each member of our community to feel valued, engaged, and empowered to succeed. As a result, the review committee will prioritize proposals that combine innovative digital education initiatives with one or more of these goals.
Innovation in education can take many forms. This program is intended to surface a wide variety of ideas and fund those deemed the most promising. Potential domains include but are not necessarily limited to:
Principal Investigators (PIs) may be either full-time faculty or senior staff. Projects for which a senior staff member serves as PI must be accompanied by a letter of endorsement from their school’s deans office.
Part-time faculty, support staff, and students may participate on teams under the supervision of the PI. Interdisciplinary and interdivisional proposals are encouraged.
If proposed, new course offerings must have endorsement and preliminary approval from the appropriate department.
Teams are welcome to revise and submit unfunded proposals that were previously submitted during earlier DELTA funding cycles. Any such resubmissions must follow the standard submission process; previously submitted proposals will not be automatically rolled over.
