The scholarship of teaching, learning, and assessment is a form of scholarship that makes our work public and available to the wider teaching community for faculty members' mutual continued learning about their teaching. The scholarship focuses on student learning and involves using evidence of student learning to improve the scholar's teaching and students' learning.
TLA Travel Grants
Faculty members are invited to apply for grants (capped at $750) to travel to conferences where they will present on teaching, learning, and assessment. The deadline for fall is February 15.
After the deadline, we will review applications on a rolling basis while funds remain.
Please remember to include description of the presentation you'll be making that clearly indicates how it conforms to the expectations regarding the scholarship of teaching, learning and assessment.
Faculty funded to travel to conferences will be asked to publish their presentation materials on the TLA website. (Application may be made in anticipation of acceptance, but funding will only be approved provisionally, pending acceptance of proposal.)
Please note that if approved applications for this semester’s Travel Grants exceed the funds available, priority will be given to those faculty who did not receive a TLA grant during Academic Year 2011-12.

If you are planning CSU funded travel, please see your department's administrative coordinator before making travel arrangements to assure you are properly reimbursed.
