In 2021 McMaster University launched its first Teaching and Learning Strategy: Partnered in Teaching and Learning. The Provost’s Office has committed to establishing a grants process to support the implementation of the objectives outlined in this strategy through various departmental and university-wide initiatives.
Grants will include both small and large funds to inspire, enable and support McMaster’s community to help drive the strategy forward within the four impact areas.
As a result of new grant opportunities connected to the Partnered in Teaching and Learning Strategy, the Experiential Learning in Academic Programming Grant funds have been reallocated and this grant is temporarily on hold.
Check back for more information about grants connected to McMaster’s teaching and learning strategy on the Teaching and Learning page of the Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) website.
