Call for Proposals for Research and Innovation Grants in Educational Technologies 2023/2024
Posted on:7 November 2023
KENET has as one of its mandates, the role of catalyzing collaboration in research and education among member universities and research institutions. KENET promotes collaboration through facilitation of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) in priority academic areas, discovery of active researchers/faculty, provision of research and innovation grants to researchers and member institutions, as well as travel grants for faculty and/or graduate students in SIG areas.
This Call for Proposals for the Educational Technologies (EdTech) Innovation Grants is intended to support faculty to explore innovative ways of leveraging Generative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) in teaching and learning. These Innovation grants target faculty who appreciate the disruption that Generative AI is having and will continue to have on teaching and learning practices and are eager to not only explore opportunities to harness this new technology to improve learning and teaching practices within higher education institutions, but are also driven to generate new knowledge on best practice for integrating Generative AI in university courses, that can be adopted by member institutions.
Through this round of funding, KENET seeks to not only support individual teams, but to facilitate institutional collaboration and formation of communities of practice in the area of focus, leading to practical knowledge and experience sharing on how best to leverage Generative AI to enhance educational experiences and outcomes within member institutions.
EdTech Research and Innovation Grant: Areas of Focus
The area of focus for this round of funding is: Innovative use-cases for applying Generative AI in teaching and learning.
This call is open to full-time faculty at any of the KENET member institutions. Applicants must be PhD holders who are actively involved in teaching a computer science, engineering or materials science course that focuses on acquisition of technical skills and competencies. Further, the course of interest must be offered and have active students enrolled during the grant period.
