Sandbox Technologies Partnership

TLOS does research and development for emerging teaching and learning technologies at Virginia Tech. We are always looking for partners with new and innovative ideas to collaborate with us.

Our Innovation Pipeline

We approach research into innovation primarily in three ways:

Sandbox Project

Time-limited explorations into new technologies to better understand how they can help increase learning outcomes.

Expanded Pilot

We collaborate with university partners to pre-pilot technology to measure specific performance indicators.

Production Services

Commited partnerships with departments across the university to test viability and support processes related to new technologies.

Our Innovation Pipeline

Do you have an interesting idea for using technology in a new way that could increase the value of research, learning, and instruction at Virginia Tech? Please feel free to contact us to start a discussion about how we can help you get your initiatives off the ground.

Grant Programs

TLOS is excited to debut a new suite of institutional grants to the Virginia Tech community! Ranging from seed grants to grow leading edge innovation to large-scale curricular redesign and competitive research grants.

4-VA Grant Initiatives

The Request for Proposal process is open for Competitive Research and Collaborative Endeavors Grants. 4-VA is a Collaborative of Virginia Tech, University of Virginia, George Mason University, James Madison University, and Old Dominion University working together to realize Virginia’s goals for higher education. 4-VA grants at Virginia Tech support collaborative endeavors, course redesign, and innovative research in support of the Collaborative’s goals.

Innovation in Learning Grants

Innovation in Learning (IL) Grants support the implementation and evaluation of new approaches to teaching and learning using technology. They advance the integration of new technologies in teaching and learning without limiting or prescribing the exploration of either the technologies or the curricular and pedagogical approaches.
