    Submit your Teaching & Learning idea for a chance to win up to $5,000 to fund your project!

    The Faculty Center for Innovation is pleased to announce Spark Tank! – an innovation grants challenge designed to create community and invigorate faculty teaching and learning at Park University. Teams of 3 (faculty/student/staff combinations) pitch their innovative teaching and learning ideas for a chance to win up to $5,000 prize to fund their project! Cross-disciplinary and cross-campus projects are encouraged.


    Teams submit a written proposal and - if advanced to final round - selected teams will present at a SparkTank event during the Fall Faculty Conference. Pitches should be exciting, engaging, concise, and outline the project’s plan for implementation and ability to innovate teaching & learning at Park. The winning teams will receive up to $5,000 to implement their project during the 2020-2021 academic year and share the results of their project.
