A new faculty award, the Learn by Doing Scholar Award, has been established to acknowledge and inspire formal scholarship and research into Cal Poly’s signature pedagogy, Learn by Doing.
The inaugural awards will be given in two categories to create an inclusive process that encourages fully-realized as well as emerging scholarship. The Published Research category ($2,000 award) recognizes completed research that has been externally reviewed and shared through publication or presentation. The Planned and In-Progress Research category ($1,000 award) recognizes promising research proposals or research in progress and supports faculty in completing and sharing their findings.
Open to all Cal Poly faculty, the awards are sponsored by the Information Services advisory board. Applications will be accepted starting Feb. 15. Recipients will be announced in spring 2015. Application procedures and criteria for the award categories are available: http://lib.calpoly.edu/faculty/learn-by-doing/
