- Integration of research evidence into teaching practice
- Generation of new knowledge about teaching and learning at the University of Calgary
- Dissemination of the results of that work to benefit others

Internal peer review
Applicants are encouraged to submit their draft applications early in order to be eligible for internal peer review (IPR).
Applications submitted for this process will be delegated to a colleague experienced with Teaching and Learning Grant applications and adjudications to provide suggestions for revisions before the final submission deadline.
Please note that making revisions as suggested does not guarantee success of the application in the adjudication process; rather the IPR process is offered as an opportunity for semi-formal feedback only.
