The purpose of the Concordia Intramural Teaching Grant (CITG) competition is to improve learning at Concordia University by supporting innovative teaching at both the Mequon and Ann Arbor campuses. Full-time faculty members may submit applications for an innovative teaching project connected to a face-to-face or blended course they are scheduled to teach in the 2019 - 2020 academic year. 

The teaching innovation must be a new development not already in the course or already planned as an innovation for the entire department/school. Funding supports the development, demonstration, and evaluation of innovation in a particular course that is over-and-above normal teaching expectations.

Examples include:
  • A service learning project
  • Developing a problem-based learning approach in a course
  • Strategies to support measurement of student learning for a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project
  • A project that advances teaching and learning of the university Global Learning Outcomes or mission
  • A project that demonstrates the value of high-impact practices or the Concordia Principles for Good Practice in Teaching and Learning


Proposals are evaluated using these criteria:

  • Organization and thoroughness
  • Support or evidence for the pedagogical strength of the innovation
  • Connection to principles of effective teaching and learning, such as high impact practices and Concordia’s Nine Principles for Good Practice in Teaching and Learning or other frameworks
  • Justification and explanation of all expense and stipend payment requested including how such expense will benefit the course, students, the faculty member, and the university
  • Description of how the project is above and beyond the usual teaching expectations
  • Description of the demonstration and evaluation of student learning, which will be submitted in the post-grant documents and demonstration
  • Potential contribution to Concordia University for use of the innovation in future courses for future students
  • Benefit to the applicant for professional development of teaching effectiveness
