The Montclair State University Network for Educational Renewal (MSUNER) welcomes you to apply for a Teacher Study Group Grant (TSG) for the 2011-2012 academic year. A TSG is meant to provide an opportunity for teachers to take responsibility for their own professional development and renewal by engaging in collaborative learning and inquiry that will advance the goal of simultaneous renewal of the schools and the education of educators. In other words, it gives a group of educators a chance to work and learn together about a topic of mutual interest.
Administrators and faculty from partner schools, faculty from the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, and faculty from the College of Education and Human Services, are eligible to apply for this type of grant. We encourage any and all combinations of educators to work together on a topic of mutual interest. Since the possibilities are endless for the design and mission of the grant, let your imagination, interests, and needs guide your thinking when writing a proposal. The study group context provides a wonderful vehicle for collegial professional development to assist in and redesign teaching.
All TSG grant proposals are due October 27, 2011.
