Teaching Innovation Grant (TIG)Sponsored by Education Resources and Technology (ERT), Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL), and the Office of the President. The Teaching Innovation Grants are available to help develop new pedagogies and acquire associated instructional technologies for common curriculum and elective courses. The program provides a transparent funding procedure for recognizing innovative practice and a pathway for sharing results. In collaboration with the President’s office, Teaching Innovation Grants can also be used to support educational collaborations between Yale and Yale-NUS faculty.Yale-NUS faculty members are eligible to receive up to $5,000 to develop their teaching impact through projects that:

·       Catalyze innovative pedagogy,

·       Adopt effective educational technology,

·       Develop and enhance curriculum, and

·       Collaborate with educators around the world.

We hope to capture and disseminate the results of these innovations within our Yale-NUS community and beyond, and the results of the innovations will be presented locally at Yale-NUS, as well as at international disciplinary meetings, and other academic and professional development conferences.
