Bringing It #79: Calls & Request for Proposals

February 02, 2022

Dear friends,

As another Spring semester begins around us, we are happy to share with you a few opportunities to get involved with BT2P and the larger community of educators in higher ed.

Request for Proposals: AMP Grants

Bringing Theory to Practice continues to offer AMP Grants this year. These grants are available to faculty, staff, and programs from any academic institution (or academic association or consortium) that has received previous grant support from BT2P. AMP Grants provide between $500 and $2,000 to support activities that amplify, disseminate, and increase the public reach of research and practice that BT2P has supported. These awards may be used to support a range of activities, including:

  • virtual or campus-to-campus consulting visits
  • multi-institutional convenings
  • presentations, reports, and publications that extend the reach of BT2P-supported work beyond traditional academic conferences and journals
  • public writing, digital and media products, and other work that bring BT2P-supported work to broader audiences

Applicants may propose collaborative activities that include academic institutions and other organizations that were not past grantees, but they must include at least one institution whose work was supported in the past by Bringing Theory to Practice.

AMP Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis. Please contact Todd Rosendahl, Assistant Director, with any questions or for further information at [email protected] find myself inspired by the tension between these thoughts, between the urgent now and the long arc. The first is a call to action, but it sets a standard of change that may be impossible to meet. The second is a call to dogged persistence and the self-care to sustain it. As I think of Dr. King’s example, the past-two years, and the way forward, I try to live in the space between them.

Call for Proposals

The Center for Engaged Learning at Elon University brings together international leaders in higher education to develop and to synthesize rigorous research on central questions about student learning. They will host a Conference on Engaged Learning from June 19 – June 20, 2022, and invite scholars interested in writing beyond the university and other engaged learning topics to join the culminating conversations of the Research Seminar Writing Beyond the University.

Please consider submitting a proposal (by March 1, 2022) that is related to one of the following themes:

  • Writing Beyond the University
  • Previous Center for Engaged Learning Research Seminar and Conference Topics
    • Capstone or Culminating Experiences
    • Global Learning, Study Abroad, and Off-Campus Domestic Study
    • Mentored Undergraduate Research
    • Residential/Living Learning Communities
    • Teaching Democratic Thinking
    • Transfer of Writing Knowledge and Practices
  • Cross-Cutting Questions about Engaged Learning, including but not limited to
    • Scaling up access to engaged learning experiences
    • Attending to diversity, inclusion, and equity across high-impact practices
    • Supporting students’ integration of learning across multiple high-impact practices for engaged learning

Proposals that attend to diversity, inclusion, and equity within or across these engaged learning practices are particularly engaged.

Call for Blog Submissions

The BT2P Blog is a space for reflection, visioning, argument, critique, praise, and provocation regarding higher education and its role in society. We want to read what you have to say and we want to share your thoughts with the larger BT2P community! Please send us your rough ideas or your completed drafts (up to 1,000 words) to [email protected] to contribute your voice to this space.

With thanks for everything you do,
