The Instructional Technology Group, in partnership with the Bass Library, 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 in the spring semester of the 2015 academic year. Yale College faculty members interested in using the iPads for the spring 2015 semester are asked to submit a proposal by Wednesday, November 19, 2014, describing how they and their students will use the iPads in support of a Yale College course. Preference will be given to proposals that involve regular, semester-long use of the tablets.
If you would like assistance in composing a proposal or comments on a draft proposal, please send your draft to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 pm Monday, November 17, 2014.
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.
Successful applicants will be expected to participate in evaluating the iPad-supported activities and sharing the experience through a blog post or talk.
Alternatively, you can send an email to
email@example.com with the following information:
- Your name
- Course number and title in which the iPads would be used
- Semester in which the course will be offered
- Estimated number of students in the course
- iPad set and duration of use
