Decisions regarding proposal funding will be announced by December 1, 2011. Reports of funded projects should be submitted by June 30, 2012. Local Knowledge Projects may be in any academic discipline (arts and the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences) or interdisciplinary. Proposals should explain the significance of the local knowledge that will be collected and should utilize digital tools in the documentation. The project proponent will be required to upload the process and result of the project to the AUDRN Mahara e-portfolio platform. An account for all approved proposals in the AUDRN e-portfolio will be provided unless the proponent already has an existing account. Proposed budgets per institution may range from US$1,000 - $2,500. Collaborative proposals involving two or more institutions are encouraged, and in these cases, proposed budgets may be increased proportionately. Proposals should meet at least one of these criteria: 1. Create and share replicable models of uses of local knowledge for teaching and learning in higher education including service-learning and other similar service activities. 2. Expand the capacity of an institution’s faculty, researchers and/or library staff in the use of digital tools for teaching, learning, student research and/or service through the collection, organization, analysis, and sharing of local knowledge data. 3. Emphasize collaboration in the collection and/or use of local knowledge data (e.g., among classes, across departments, among the institution and community, or among higher education institutions in one country or internationally) including the involvement of undergraduate students as active participants in the research process.
