Announcement from the ABCDE Committee Chair:

The Adult Baccalaureate Completion and Distance Education (ABCDE) Committee is pleased to announce the availability of Faculty E-Learning Technology Grants for the 2014/2015 academic year.

The exploration of emerging technology fits squarely within the purview of faculty. Pedagogical needs should drive technology adoption. This project provides professional development grants to faculty who want to engage emerging e-learning tools, or leverage existing UMS-provided technologies, for their potential to support high-quality learning experiences for students at the University of Maine System campuses.

The ABCDE Committee recognizes the extra time and effort required for faculty to develop technology-based solutions for their courses.  It is hoped these grants will help to support best practice in adult learning theory and instructional design and reward collaboration across the UMS campuses.

University College, working with faculty and instructional support staff, IT Services, and other groups will coordinate the evaluation and communication process for eLearning Technology proposals and standards.

Grant Proposal Submission deadline is: April 11, 2014.

We look forward to receiving you submission.

Dr. Allyson Hughes Handley,

President, University of Maine at Augusta
Chair, ABCDE Committee
