About the ARNOVA Teaching Section
The Teaching Section of the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA) is a community of scholars and practitioners who are committed to improving and furthering teaching and learning focused on nonprofit organizations, philanthropy, civil society, and voluntary action. Our community provides a forum for networking, information and resource sharing, building teaching capacity, as well as fostering and disseminating related research.
Request for Proposals
In accordance with that mission, the Executive Board of the Teaching Section is issuing a request for proposals for the creation of Teaching Guides in the following two areas of specialization:
·       Using cases to teach nonprofit management and philanthropy study, including but not limited to a) where to find cases, b) how to use cases, and c) how to develop your own cases. 

·         Experiential learning, such as how to develop, manage, and evaluate experiential learning in teaching nonprofit and philanthropy courses.  

Teaching Guides are intended to be a set of resources that educators can access in order to assist in their successful teaching about nonprofit management and philanthropy.  Examples of materials include: sample syllabi, mini-case studies; sample assignments and tests; weekly learning modules; reading lists; classroom exercises; and links to outside resources. 

We expect to award research grants to two researchers to design and prepare teaching guides in the above-stated areas.  Each grant will include a $750 stipend (payable in two payments of $375) to assist in the completion of the work.  All Teaching Guides are expected to be completed by October 31, 2019.  They will be made available in electronic format on the ARNOVA website.  Individuals who are selected for grants may also be asked to give a presentation at the ARNOVA conference or through a webinar.
Application Procedures

Proposals are due on July 15th, 2019 and should include the following information:

·         A cover letter describing your background in the subject and teaching experience

·         A 1-2 page (single-spaced) abstract about your intended work, including:
