The Teaching Innovation with Technology Competition aims to encourage innovative use of technology for improved learning outcomes.

These efforts have produced new teaching techniques that have enhanced learning, and research results that have been presented and published internationally.

Awardees will receive $1,500 in FRA allocation in FY15 and will work with IT Educational Technology to implement their proposals between 24 September and 4 December. Selection of the winning implementation is tentatively scheduled for 8 December.
