HP Announces Technology Grant Opportunity for U.S. Colleges and Universities
Aims to Enhance Student Success as Faculty Members Adopt Technology-Enhanced Instruction in Their Classrooms

HP has announced an initiative that will award grants totaling $2.8 million in cash and HP equipment to two- and four-year colleges and universities in the United States and Puerto Rico.

The 2007 HP Technology for Teaching Grant initiative supports the redesign of math, science and engineering courses, with the ultimate goal of increasing the number of students graduating with high-tech degrees. This year, extra consideration is being given to proposals related to environmental engineering and “green” product design.

The program aims to enhance student success as faculty members adopt technology-enhanced instruction in their classrooms. Based on the outcomes of the projects funded through this initiative in 2007, HP may offer grant recipients the opportunity to receive higher-value grants in 2008.

Higher education institutions interested in applying for this grant will find additional information, request for proposal forms and application submission deadlines at www.hp.com/go/hpteach.

Past grant success – Duke University connects the lecture to the lab

Students and faculty at Duke University, a two-time recipient of the HP Technology for Teaching Grant, use HP Tablet PCs in electrical and computer engineering courses to bridge the gap between lecture and laboratory activities and increase student comprehension and retention of course material. Additionally, the HP Tablet PCs facilitate active learning in the classroom by wirelessly recording feedback, which allows faculty to address misconceptions immediately, and by enabling collaborative problem solving.

HP Tablet PCs have now been selected as a focus of the Duke Digital Initiative. More information about how Duke has applied the HP Technology for Teaching Grant to build its innovative education program is available at http://fie.engrng.pitt.edu/fie2006/papers/1283.pdf.

More examples of HP Technology for Teaching grant successes in higher education are available at www.hp.com/go/hpteach-hied or on the HP “Teaching, Learning, and Technology in Higher Education” blog at www.hp.com/go/hied-blog.

HP’s worldwide commitment to schools through the HP Technology for Teaching Grant initiative totals more than $36 million since the program’s launch in 2004.

The goals of HP’s education programs are to transform teaching and learning through the innovative use of technology, increase the number of underrepresented students on a path toward high-tech careers, and enhance student success in math, science and engineering.
