Consultations on Educational Components of Grants

In support of the efforts of the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) and the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations, and in collaboration with the Broader Impacts group, the Sheridan Center provides pedagogical expertise and feedback for the educational components of grant proposals.

The Sheridan Center staff is available to (1) review grant proposals (or sections therein) pertaining to teaching, educational outreach, instructional technology, and broader impact statements; (2) develop evaluation plans to assess the effectiveness of proposed pedagogical innovations.

The Center has expertise in:

  • creating postdoc mentoring plans
  • developing evaluation plans for postsecondary educational grants
  • developing broader impact sections pertaining to teaching and learning at Brown
  • planning teaching innovations

After consultation, the Center may be cited in the grant as part of ongoing pedagogical support offered by Brown.
