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 2020.
In keeping with the university’s 10×20 goals, the Provost’s Office is particularly interested in encouraging cross-disciplinary and cross-divisional collaboration, individual excellence, commitment to our communities, and institution building. 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:
All proposals must have a full-time faculty member as the principal investigator, but part-time faculty, support staff, and students may participate on teams under the supervision of the faculty member. Interdisciplinary and interdivisional proposals are encouraged.
If proposed, new course offerings must have preliminary approval from the appropriate department.
Faculty are welcome to revise and submit unfunded proposals that were previously submitted during the 2018 and 2019 DELTA funding cycles. Any such resubmissions must follow the standard submission process; previously submitted proposals will not be automatically rolled over.
