Situation: Due to my ongoing Instructional Design activities, my skills and input have become much in demand. I have the ongoing charge to generate new uses of Instructional technologies campus wide and now extending to the district as well.

Tasks: Ongoing revision of existing projects, creation of grant funded Technology Enhances Learning project to generate new solutions.

Action: With Center for Teaching and Learning Director, I designed and developed a process by which faculty would apply for grants based on submission of proposed instructional solutions to existing instructional problems. formative evaluarion, analysis, design and developement were completed over the course of one semester and implemtation and summative evaluation in the following semester. Established a project review board who selected the candidages and awarded the grant. One half the grant was givent to begin the projets and the rest rewarded upon successful demionstration of implementation the next semester.
