Pedagogy Enhancement Awards (PEA)

The Pedagogy Enhancement Award Program is a competitive grant program that supports faculty to develop expertise, curriculum, and programs that improve the quality of teaching and learning at Sacramento State.

The objectives of the pedagogy enhancement program are:

  • To increase the teaching and scholarly effectiveness of faculty to enhance student learning and success through:
    • Innovative teaching, scholarship, and research
    • Program customization and outcome-based assessment
    • Curriculum and pedagogy that reflects the diversity of knowledge and expertise within disciplines and ensures an antiracism and inclusive classroom environment
  • Promote discipline-specific expertise, programs, collections, and/or curriculum that represents Sacramento State’s commitment to a diverse student body
  • To disseminate the results of the project

Funded projects respond to the varied needs of our diverse student population and results are disseminated both locally and nationally.

PEA Online Application Call for Reviewers

The Pedagogy Enhancement Awards call for reviewer’s application is available.

The Pedagogy Enhancement Awards Program provides assigned time and monetary grants for pedagogy enhancement projects. The Pedagogy Enhancement Subcommittee is responsible for recommending faculty projects for support. To make the selection fair, we need the assistance of faculty members to judge the relative merit of faculty proposals. Reviewers will read and evaluate up to ten proposals during the semester break and may be asked to attend one panel meeting. Many previous volunteers have found the task to be interesting and gratifying.
