ACP Information Session

ACPThe Academic Commons Program (ACP) invites you to learn about generative grant and fellowship opportunities available now to RISD’s full- and part-time faculty, graduate students, and recent post-grads.

ACP Information Session
April 2, 12–1 PM
The Tap Room

Funded by the Davis Educational Foundation, the Academic Commons Program (ACP) is a two-year pilot program supporting research and practice in integrative teaching and learning across RISD’s undergraduate programs.

Integrative teaching explicitly connects various disciplines, ideas, theories, and practices—when history and drawing instruction take place in the same room, for example, or when writing or scientific research methods are applied in the studio.

Integrative teaching is widely defined, and the ACP is an open, experimental platform. Courses are not funded, but research, lectures, workshops, exhibitions, conference travel, and publications are.

Come find out how you might give yourself time and support to explore new directions and approaches in innovative, integrative, undergraduate education.

See to learn more about current projects underway and to apply.

Deadline for summer and fall 2013 grants and fellowships is May 1.
