Digital Literacy Assignment Grant

Teacher at a chalk boardThe Johnson Digital Literacy Assignment Grant is designed for faculty who wish to enhance a course to include a digital literacy assignment. The assignment should allow students to explore the digital presentation of information and the ways that digital tools can be an effective part of the research process or the presentation of research results. The assignment may be a new one or a reworking of an existing one. Its design and assessment must connect directly to a student learning outcome for the course that addresses the value of digital literacy.

Applicants are required to schedule a consultation with R.C. Miessler, Systems and Digital Initiatives Librarian (rmiessle@gettysburg.edu). The grant provides a $500 stipend, and the JCCTL will pay for up to 20 hours of support from one of Musselman Library’s Digital Scholarship Fellows. Fellows are students trained in the use of digital tools available on the Gettysburg Sites online platform. Up to two grants are awarded each year.

This application can be saved as a Word document for editing. Type your answers under each heading. Applications from all disciplines are encouraged. Please submit this application to jcctl@gettysburg.edu .

Deadline for application is March 9, 2023.

Recipients of a JCCTL fellowship or grant must submit a written report at the conclusion of their project and be willing to make one or more presentations about their work in appropriate on-campus venues. (Report form)
