Pedagogical Support and Innovation will be offering two workshops for teachers interested in Vanier’s Development and Support Opportunities: Planning a Research or Pedagogical Innovation Project (January 25) and Preparing a Research or Pedagogical Innovation Project Proposal (February 1). Workshop descriptions are as follows:

Planning a Research or Pedagogical Innovation Project

Wednesday, January 25, D221, 12:00-1:30

Thinking of applying to carry out a project as part of Vanier’s Development and Support Opportunities? This workshop will cover some of the main elements to keep in mind as you develop your research or pedagogical innovation project. These include:

  • Choosing a topic: is it original and feasible?
  • Reviewing existing work: how have other teachers and researchers previously addressed the topic, and how can you build and expand upon what they’ve done?
  • Selecting your methods: what do you need to do to carry out the project?
  • Evaluating your work: how will you know if it is working?
  • Transferring knowledge: how will you share the results of your project?

Participants may also wish to register for the follow-up workshop on February 1 on how to prepare a proposal.

Preparing a Research or Pedagogical Innovation Project Proposal

Wednesday, February 1, D221, 12:00-1:30

A strong project is a great start; the next thing you need is a proposal that communicates your project in an effective and compelling way. This workshop focuses on how to make a strong argument for your project and for yourself as the project leader within the context of a specific funding source.

Topics to be covered in this workshop include:

  • How to highlight the most important elements of your project
  • How to tailor your proposal to the appropriate audience
  • How to work within the guidelines of the funding application to make a convincing proposal

Although this workshop is specifically directed at teachers preparing proposals for research or pedagogical innovation projects under Vanier’s Development and Support Opportunities, it will also be of interest for teachers intending to apply for external grants from SSHRC, PAREA, or other agencies.

Participants are encouraged to also attend the January 25 workshop on developing a research or pedagogical innovation project. Participants are also welcome to bring drafts of their proposals to workshop them at this session.

For more information, please contact Krista Riley at rileyk@vanier.college, phone ext. 8241.
