The Yale Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), in partnership with the Bass Library and ITS, is offering two sets of 20 iPad Airs (32GB, WI-Fi-only) and two sets of 20 iPad minis (16GB, WI-Fi-only) for instructional use during the fall 2015 semester. Yale faculty members interested in using the iPads for the fall semester are asked to submit a proposal by Thursday, August 6, 2015, describing how they and their students will use the iPads in support of a Yale course. Preference will be given to proposals that involve innovative applications of this technology to achieve course learning goals.
Proposals can be submitted using the online form found on the Mobile@Yale site. More information and examples of instructional uses of iPads from past recipients can also be found on the Mobile@Yale site.
If you would like assistance in composing a proposal or comments on a draft proposal, please send your draft to CTL Instructional Designer, Edward O’Neill (firstname.lastname@example.org), by 5:00 pm Monday, August 3, 2015.
The selected applicants will be provided with pedagogical and technical support to assist with the development and implementation of the proposed activities. Purchasing assistance will also be provided for proposals requiring specialized iPad applications.
The iPad set recipients will be expected to participate in evaluating the iPad-supported activities and sharing the experience through a public talk, a blog post on the Mobile@Yale site, and/or other appropriate outlets..
