2020 (Round 9) Proposal Update
There were 117 submissions (53 Tier 1, 41 Tier 2, and 23 Tier 3). Each proposal received 4 or 5 independent peer reviews, coupled with a secondary review by the Innovation Instruction Research Council (IIRC) and a final review by members of the Office of the Provost staff. Unfortunately, we were unable to fund many worthy projects because of the New York State budget crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. A handful of proposals are “on hold” for a decision later this summer when the budget situation is more clear. Everyone who submitted has been notified about the status of their proposal.
Given the uncertainty about the economy and its impact on SUNY budgets in 20-21, we encourage those who have innovative ideas to pursue external funding sources. There is funding available if you are able to frame your project so that it is relevant to COVID-19: https://www.rfsuny.org/about-us/covid-19/covid-19-funding/
The IIRC and IITG Program Administrators appreciate that a tremendous amount of effort is expended in these proposals, and we thank everyone who submitted a proposal for your support of the program!
Mission of Innovative Instruction Technology Grants
The Innovative Instruction Technology Grant (IITG) program promotes research and fosters understanding of how new technologies support academic excellence and student success. IITG leverages a “network of networks”, including tools and practices that will collaboratively increase efficiency and capacity for SUNY-wide delivery of high quality instruction.
