Teaching Innovation Grants

Each semester, we support up to 6 proposals that do not exceed more than 5000 TL each.

Every semester, KOLT provides Teaching Innovation Grants to the faculty members who would like to experiment with any of the following items:

  • Preparing a new COURSERA course (a massive open online course);
  • Course design that uses educational technologies (course videos, online quizzes, clickers, vPads, wikis, blogs, podcasts, e-portfolios and social media) to develop online supplementary course resources, online assessment methods, collaborative activities on Blackboard or Moodle (Koç University Learning Management Systems);
  • Course design that promotes “flipped classroom” by using Blackboard or Moodle;
  • Joint teaching projects within Koç University or with external partners to start interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary faculty collaboration;
  • Course design that promotes active learning and critical thinking;
  • Curriculum enhancements by faculty from different departments: qualitative and quantitative evaluation (survey, focus groups, interviews and observations) of courses in terms of learning outcomes, content, delivery and assessment to strengthen the link among sequence of courses;
  • Any innovative solution to the problems raised in the mid-semester course evaluation of the faculty applying for the grant.

Each semester, we support up to 6 proposals that do not exceed more than 5000 TL each.
