Courseware Development Grant Scheme (2013-14)
First Round: Call for Applications
The Academic IT Steering Committee (AITSC) has applied budget from the Teaching Development Grant for Courseware Development Grant Scheme (CDGS). AITSC is now inviting applications from members of the teaching staff for projects funded under this allocation. Projects must be related to UGC-funded courses and programmes. The deadline of this call for applications is 30 November 2013.
The aim of this CDGS is to encourage teachers to move forward from the basic use of eLearning towards developing more sophisticated or more complete eLearning environments for their students.
In view of this aim, applicants should devise proposed projects with a budget in the order of $50,000, with a maximum $100,000. Smaller projects will be considered but will have a lower priority.
Examples of some showcases of previous products of CDGS can be found in http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/eLearning/resources/showcase.htm. We have also invited some experienced users to give us presentation on the CUHK Expo that held on 13 December, 2012 (http://www5.cuhk.edu.hk/eLearning/expo2012). Showcases could be found in the website.
An application form can be downloaded from the eLearning website: http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/eLearning/cdgs/cdgsapply13.doc. Applicants should provide a title, a brief description of the project, a timeline, a clear evaluation plan and a budget estimated at an item level. Please note that hardware items are not covered under the CDGS. Also, applicants should indicate whether the project is funded by other sources.
Completed application forms in MS Word or PDF format should be sent through email to firstname.lastname@example.org, Ms. Carol Chiu, Secretary of the Academic IT Steering Committee, no later than 30 November 2013. Please do not send hardcopy applications.Project requirements
