Teaching and Technology Transfer Grant recipients for 2017 announced
Five new recipients have been selected for OACETT's Teaching and Technology Transfer Grant, established to provide financial assistance to Ontario college faculty teaching in OACETT-recognized engineering technology and applied science programs, to attend a conference, workshop, seminar or symposium that will promote enhanced excellence in technology education and technology transfer with direct benefits to students, industry and OACETT membership at large.
Recipients, who will participate in specialized educational events in 2017 with the assistance of the grant, are:
• Richard Baldin, Niagara College (Bringing Smart Manufacturing to the Classroom)

These successful applicants join 11 others who have already taken advantage of this support. Since 2014, when the grant was first awarded, recipients have been regularly reporting back on the benefits they, their college and their students have gained as a direct result of the learning opportunities this financial assistance enabled them to pursue.
The application form for 2018 Teaching and Technology Grant submissions will be sent out to Engineering Technology and Applied Science deans in September. One request per college can be submitted for consideration and must be approved by the dean of the faculty. The maximum amount allocated for any single request is $2,500 CDN.
