Application Period: from December 28th to 24pm January 18, 2024 

1.The purpose of the program is to enhance the atmosphere of teaching-related research in the university, encourage faculty members to carry out practice research in front-line teaching, foster evidence-based teaching experiments, and thereby leverage students’ learning outcome and overall teaching quality.

2.The theme for this semester is “Integrating Generative AI into Teaching.” The goal is to solve problems in the teaching practices through the use of generative AI tools. Teachers should utilize generative AI tools before, during, or after class to enhance teaching quality, or guide and plan for students to use generative AI tools to improve their learning outcomes.

3.All full-time, part-time, and project teachers in NTU are welcome to apply for the program. Each teacher can only submit one research project at a time. The research project should be based on a course or a co-teaching course taught by the applicant in the 2024 Spring semester. The course should be on the NTU Course Information Website and has a curriculum number. If the course is cancelled, the grant will not be awarded.

4.The implementation period for the research project is from February 19, 2024 to June 30, 2024. No extension will be granted.

(3) Course Materials and Course Syllabus

7.The application review for this semester will be based on the following criteria:
(1) Clear description of the problem in the teaching practices, reflecting the needs of the teaching environment.
(2) The chosen generative AI tool is capable of resolving the problem in the teaching environment.
(3) The clarity of research objectives; the measurability of research questions.
(4) The theoretical foundation of instructional design and research design; the relevance of literature review.
(5) The clarity of instructional design and steps.
(6) The instructional design is appropriate and effective.
(7) Research methods and tools are capable of addressing the research question.
(8) Effectiveness are evaluated by multiple methods.

8.Please complete the budget plan (appendix 2). Each case is eligible for a maximum subsidy of NTD 100,000 for operating expenses (see appendix 2 for details). The fund cannot be used for personnel expenses and equipment fee, and should comply with MOE’s regulations for the use of funds. Any surplus upon the completion of the project, should be paid back to the Center.

9.If the research project has been approved, the applicant should submit the consent form (please refer to the template of the Research Ethics Center) within 10 days of receiving the notification. Furthermore, if the research project needs to be modified, the applicant should also return the modified project within 10 days. No reimbursement information will be provided until the aforementioned document(s) have all been submitted.

10.Teachers who receive the grant should submit (1) research report and (2) 5-10 page ppt presentation of research results by July 31, 2024.

11.In order to comply with the principles of academic ethics, the applicant should not apply for the program if the research project has already been subsidized or is under reviewed by other programs. The applicant should take full responsibility for any violation of academic integrity proved by concrete evidence.
