This digital application gives Social Sciences course instructors an easy way to apply for the undergraduate In-Course Experience Fund.
Because this funding is resourced via the Careers & Experiential Education supplemental fee paid by undergraduate students, the funding is intended to allow instructors of undergraduate courses to bring career-development, experiential, or hands-on elements into the classroom, outside of what would be considered standard academic lecture, discussion, and lab proceedings.
Typically, the In-Course Experience Fund is used when instructors themselves require funds for the class to purchase resources, tools, licenses, virtual admission, etc. rather than for staffing or for payment to another person, company, consultant, etc.
Funding applications that involve inviting career guest speakers into the classroom should be applied for via the Career Speaker Fund, which can also cover related ancillary costs.
Funding applications that involve inviting trainers/facilitators into the classroom should be applied for via the Trainer/Facilitator Fund, which can also cover related ancillary costs.
Successful In-Course Experience Fund applications by instructors of undergraduate Social Sciences courses will clearly address at least one of the following eligibility categories:
- simulations (experiences simulating a situation or workflow in a workplace, community, or public sector scenario)
- hands-on learning (experiences focused on giving students a chance to try practical techniques, tools and application)
- career development (experiences aimed at career exploration, planning or preparation for students)
- skill development (experiences fostering transferable skills beyond core academic skills)
- field learning (experiences including field trips, class excursions, site visits, tours, etc.)
