Tablet Computing in Instruction Grant Program CFP

2014 Tablet Computing in Instruction Grant Program

The Tablet Initiative began in 2004 for the purpose of igniting innovative ideas for techniques in learning through tablet technology across multiple disciplines of Tennessee Technological University. This project, conceived by the Technology Institute with the cooperative support of the office of the Provost, has established a foundation of success in technological learning enhancement for higher education.

Current case studies provide examples of past and current use of tablet technology by TTU faculty.


We are pleased to be able to continue supporting faculty innovation in instruction with the 2014 Tablet Computing in Instruction Grant Program.

The Technology Institute is calling for proposals from tenured and tenure-track faculty to incorporate tablet computing in instruction. The objective would be to embrace innovative technology to discover the possibilities of adapting these tools for present and future methods of instruction. Each grant recipient will be provided the use of a Tablet PC or iPad for the 2014 academic year with the ability to apply for annual renewal. The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 11, 2013.

The Tablet grant proposals will be reviewed and awarded on a one-year renewable basis. The grants have the potential for renewal through the life of the awarded Tablet PC based on accomplishing the goals of the proposal and a continuation plan/application for renewal submitted at the end of each year.

It is highly recommended that you visit the Technology Institute to preview these technologies and seek advise for meeting your instructional needs before making your choice between the Tablet PC or iPad.
