Below are some points you may want to consider in developing your proposal.
Goals of the Project. What do you want to accomplish, for the students, through this project? How does the proposal relates to students needs, to the professional development of faculty and staff involved, to departmental (both academic and PGC) and college priorities?
Collaborative Design. What collaborations in planning have you already begun? How do you expect to proceed in working together?
Project Implementation. What specifically does the project entail? What activities are to be carried out, by whom, and how logistics (if appropriate) will be arranged?
Teaching Approaches. How will students be prepared for involvement in this project, and what plans do you have for debriefing this component of the course? What teaching approaches will be used and how this segment, unit, experience, and/or assignment will be incorporated into the course as a whole?
Impact on Learning. If this project works, what difference will it make? How will it contribute to the realization of your teaching goals? What effect will it have on your class, your students? What methods will you use to get student feedback?
