Established in 2003 the Foreign Language Technology Center’s Mini-Grants program fosters innovative uses of technology in teaching language, literature and culture. FLTC Mini-Grants will be awarded to instructional interventions that propose the integration of emerging technologies in meaningful ways to enhance student learning. Projects should involve the development of online or technology-based instructional material for incorporation into existing language, literature or culture courses to achieve specific learning objectives. Creation of online learning modules for fully online or blended courses is particularly encouraged.
Grant applicants may envision the use of online and emerging technologies for enhancing course content, adding supplemental material, providing additional practice opportunities, or assessing learning. Examples of projects include the creation of podcasts, online content modules, online testing components, video vignettes and audio recordings.

Grant recipients are expected to begin and complete working on their projects during the Spring/Summer semester, and implement their initiative in the following Fall (or Winter) semester. Proposals will be awarded up to a maximum of $2000. Grant recipients are expected to share information about the development, implementation and impact of their project at a FLTC Brown Bag presentation.
