Committees / Associations: Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR): FAQ
Who can attend a TLTR meeting?
Anyone can attend TLTR meetings. If you are interested in technology in the classroom please feel free to stop by a meeting and get involved.
Who can be a committee member?
The TLTR committee is made up of faculty and staff. Each unit should have one representative on the committee. Administration and professional staff can also join.
When does the committee meet?
TLTR meets once a month on a Wednesday morning from 9:00 - 10:30. Please see the current schedule for the next meeting time.
When are the TLTR grant applications due?
The fall deadline for TLTR grant applications is every third Friday in November. For the spring, applications due every fourth Friday in April.
Is there a limit to how much I can ask for?
TLTR is able to fund projects which cost as low as $20 and will fund projects up to $3,000. When you apply, you can indicate if you are seeking a "Mini Grant" ($20-$500) or an "Innovative Grant" (over $500).
What happens if I can't use the funding in the time specified in my grant application?
If you are unable to complete your project in the time specified within your application, you will be asked to re-submitted your application during a future grants cycle.
How can I tell if my idea is appropriate for a TLTR grant?
If you are unsure if your idea is appropriate for a TLTR grant, feel free to contact the current Grants Committee chair or the current TLTR Committee chair. We are always happy to help you develop your project or let you know of additional resources available on campus.
Does TLTR support the creation of websites?
TLTR is happy to support web-related or web-based projects. This is not the same as websites that may serve as a repository for student and/or faculty resources. Please see following examples of appropriate web-based TLTR funded projects:
The creation of websites is currently supported by Ramapo College. This service is provided by the Office of Marketing and Communications. In addition to setting-up a website, staff are happy to either train you to maintain your site yourself or offer alternatives to the maintenance of your site (depending on the scope and size). Other tools, such as Google sites, are provided by ITS. As always, members of TLTR are happy to offer help and guidance in this area as well.
How are the grants considered?
The TLTR Grants Committee reviews applications with the TLTR Grant Rubric.
Can I apply every semester?
Yes. However, if a semester is highly competitive and the Grants Committee receives applications which exceed the amount allotted for that semester, applicants who have not recently been awarded grants within the last 3 semesters will receive priority.
Please note: special consideration may be given to applications which are the completion of a project previously funded by TLTR.
