Instructional Development Grants
The Instructional Development Grants competition is no longer being funded as a component of the annual Classroom Teaching Infrastructure Development Fund (CTID). Therefore, the competition for 2014 has been suspended pending the identification of alternative sources of funding. Further updates will be made available on this website and will be communicated through usual unversity channels.
For more detailed information on researching teaching and student outcomes in postsecondary education the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STHLE), the Canadian Association of College and University Student Services (CACUSS), the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO), and the Centre for Leadership in Learning (McMaster University) have published a guidebook entitled Researching Teaching and Student Outcomes in Postsecondary Education: A Guide (link below). This resource document is intended to provide an introduction to teaching and learning research and to encourage inquiry into teaching and learning.
