GSOLE will award one or more grants to support research related to online literacy education. We welcome proposals and research that addresses GSOLE’s mission in general and that focuses on equity and inclusion in online teaching and learning in particular. GSOLE’s mission and a list of potential research areas about online literacy are posted at the web pages listed below. In reviewing these web pages, we also encourage participants to consider other topics related to how online writing instruction can support equitable access, opportunities, and support for all learners.
We particularly encourage part-time, contract, and early career educators to apply. We also encourage applications from underrepresented groups and institutions. We hope for submissions from a broad range of candidates.
