Purpose of the Program
The Pedagogical Research Challenge Awards at Queensborough Community College is a program that supports research projects on community college pedagogy.
The program calls for studies of various interventions that can impact student learning outcomes. It is expected that these awards will stimulate future research projects and grant proposals that will enhance our capacity to continue to study this important aspect of higher education. It is also hoped that this program will result in driving Queensborough Community College toward regional and national recognition in this important area of study.
The program is open to research projects in the disciplines that constitute all the academic divisions and services that support student learning. Investigators may wish to focus on a problem with a single discipline or collaborate with the intention of making a cross-disciplinary examination. Faculty and administrators may submit proposals for research studies that will measure the influence of academic and student service methodologies on student learning.
