NC State faculty have an opportunity to apply for DELTA Express Grants for spring 2022 — these funding opportunities are dedicated to enhancing teaching and learning by applying technology in innovative, collaborative ways. 

Like our traditional DELTA Grants program offered every year in the spring, DELTA Express Grants provide support, key services and financial resources to increase student success through faculty partnerships and research-based best practices. 

DELTA Express Grants differ from DELTA Grants in that they are shorter and more directed course improvement grants which will last a semester as opposed to the traditional year. 

We are excited to offer two grant types this fall —  Instructional Tools grant and the Rapid Course Design grant

Instructional Tools Grant

Are you a fan of using instructional tools in your teaching, but want to apply them more effectively in your course? Meet the Instructional Tools grant. 

The Instructional Tools grant assists faculty who want to create effective learning activities using the following tools and concepts: accessibility, Universal Design for Learning, gamification, Google Assignments, Gradescope, H5P, Moodle quizzes, Moodle rubrics and grading guides, Panopto, PlayPosit, Top Hat, Turnitin PeerMark and WordPress.

This grant is meant for faculty who want to integrate effective learning strategies aligned with their course goals and delivery methods but seek assistance designing effective and pedagogically appropriate activities using technology. 

Recipients of this grant will receive $2,000 as well as DELTA  support, including but not limited to workshops, consultations, action plan templates and additional resources.

Rapid Course Design Grant

Need a quality course and fast? The Rapid Course Design grant has you covered.

The Rapid Design Course grant helps faculty quickly develop effective, standards-based online courses using a series of consultations and templated courses and materials. Designed to empower faculty to create a solid foundational design for their courses, the grant supports the rapid design and development of a new or existing online and distance education course according to national course quality standards and best practices.

Recipients of this grant will receive $2,000 as well as support from DELTA’s expert instructional designers and technologists. This grant is best-suited for faculty who are self-starters, only need direct guidance to quickly get courses online and do not require media support.
