Duke University - Bass Connections: Information, Society and Culture. Request for Faculty Proposals: Vertically Integrated Interdisciplinary Teams [Restricted to Duke Faculty Only]

Synopsis:
Access to unprecedented amounts of information is creating new opportunities for Duke students and faculty, working together in multidisciplinary teams, to actively engage with and to change the world around them. These teams form the core of Bass Connections and the Information, Society and Culture Theme is now soliciting faculty led proposals for the academic year 2013/14.

Team projects might provide undergraduates with new classes and learning modules, internships, and civic engagement experiences. Undergraduates might participate with graduate and professional students, as well as outside experts.

Projects funded in this round may begin in the summer of 2013, and must begin no later than September 1, 2013. Projects may extend over a single academic year or over multiple years; an initial report will be expected by June 1, 2014. Additional co-funding of projects from Duke or external sources is not required but is welcomed, as is the opportunity to sustain activity beyond the term of the award. Some team projects will form modules of the Information theme’s gateway course in the fall of 2013.

Bass Connections encourages Duke students and faculty to collaborate across traditional academic boundaries; proposals should support these objectives. See http://today.duke.edu/2013/01/bassconnections for more details.

Deadline: Requests should be submitted electronically before 5pm on Monday, March 18, 2013 to kathy.peterson@duke.edu.
