The Instructional Technology Group, in partnership with the Bass Library, is offering two sets of 20 iPad Airs (32GB, WI-Fi-only) and two sets of 20 iPad minis (16GB, WI-Fi-only) for instructional use. Yale College faculty members interested in using the iPads are asked to submit a proposal describing how they and their students will use the iPads in support of a Yale College course. The iPad proposals can be written for either semester-long course use or for short-term class use. Preference will, however, be given to proposals that involve regular, semester-long use of the tablets.
The successful applicants will be provided with pedagogical and technical support to assist with the development and implementation of the proposed activities. Purchasing assistance will also be provided for proposals requiring specialized iPad applications.
Successful applicants will be expected to participate in evaluating the iPad-supported activities and sharing the experience through a blog post or talk.
To submit a proposal, use the online form (please note you will be taken to another site).
Alternatively, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Your name
- Course number and title in which the iPads would be used
- Semester in which the course will be offered
- Estimated number of students in the course
- iPad set and duration of use
- A description of the proposed use of the iPads
