Vice Provost for Teaching & Learning
The Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning's iPads for Learning Program investigates the extent to which the use of iPads can potentially impact teaching, learning, and research when applied in the service of specific goals. Each quarter the program committee supports a select number of Stanford faculty and instructor proposals that demonstrate the potential to make a contribution to Stanford's understanding of using iPads to support teaching, learning, and research.
Applications are typically due in March. Check back for deadlines.
The ATSL also loans individual iPads to faculty members and instructors throughout the school year for short-term testing and experimentation. Please contact Michael Rouan (email@example.com) to reserve a unit.
Awardees will receive:

The iPad combines powerful hardware features (touch interface, Wi-Fi, a camera, and a high-resolution screen), with over 500,000 native iPad apps available on the iTunes Store, allowing awardees to customize their iPads to create engaging pedagogically and disciplinarily relevant learning experiences.
