Center for Teaching and Scholarship

ACADEMICS / Center for Teaching and Scholarship
  • The Center for Teaching and Scholarship (CTS) was established to foster academic excellence at Asian University for Women. The primary goal of the CTS is to provide support and service for faculty members to develop their teaching and scholarship. CTS organizes informational events and workshops for faculty members and circulates news about AUW faculty achievements.

    An area of growth in faculty development programs offered by CTS is in organizing faculty exchange programs and training opportunities with institutions in other countries. The center works in collaboration with the AUW Support Foundation and Career Development and International Programs Office for these programs.

    CTS also oversees AUW research and advises faculty on potential funders and grant writing techniques.

    While all of the above programs are focused on AUW faculty, the center is expanding into providing its academic expertise to educators and other professionals in Bangladesh and the region. Offerings include short courses and certificate programs on topics ranging from English as a second language to biostatistics to mobile app development. CTS is also available to create customized training programs for government agencies, businesses and NGOs. These courses are taught by AUW faculty during breaks and/or on weekends, or in collaboration with other institutions.

    If you have questions about any of the services CTS provides, please contact:

    Summary: This seminar is mainly for those who are curious or interested in writing a research grant proposal and would like to know how to get started. I will share my experience of writing research grant proposals using the example of a recent proposal that was successful. The seminar will identify some general and key aspects of writing research grant proposals. Sometimes it’s not the best scholar who gets the research grant but the one who packages their ideas concisely and convincingly. This is called “strategic story telling”.
