Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry 2014 Educational Starter Grants
Deadline: May 23rd, 2014
The Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry (ASCO) is pleased to announce the offering of the 2014 Educational Starter Grants dedicated to supporting educational research. Funding from The Vision Care Institute, LLC, an affiliate of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. will support the starter grants.
■ The amount and number of awards will vary depending on the individual projects. Budget requests up to $3,000 will be considered. Grants cannot cover indirect institutional costs, salaries for the principal investigator or others administering the grant, administrative expenses or travel expenses.
■ Funds will be used to develop research methods, including reflection and analysis, focus groups, surveys, analysis of existing data, and observational research case studies. The educational research starter grants will serve to introduce and support the concepts of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Although, all types of educational research projects will be considered, priority will be given to those who embrace the concepts of SoTL.
The concept of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning applies to all disciplines and levels of academia. The scholarship of teaching and learning embraces teaching as a worthy subject for research with the goal of producing a public body of knowledge that is reviewed developed and tested for the purpose of increasing effective teaching and student learning. The scholarship of teaching and learning is illustrated by:
■ The use of teaching (didactic, clinical, laboratory etc.) as a subject for the research.
■ Asking questions about student learning and the teaching activities designed to promote student learning in an effort, at least in part, to improve one’s own teaching practice.
■ Answering those questions by systematically analyzing evidence of student learning.
■ Sharing the results of that analysis publicly in order to invite review and to contribute to the body of knowledge on student learning in a variety of contexts.
For more information on SoTL: http://cft.vanderbilt.edu/teaching-guides/reflecting/sotl/
Implementation: Faculty from all the schools and colleges of optometry in the 50 states and Puerto Rico will have the opportunity to submit an educational research proposal related to education, teaching or learning.
Proposals will be reviewed by a review committee. The committee’s charge in addition to awarding the grants is to give feedback to all applicants and to insure high quality educational research.

Call for Nominations: Society for Personality and Social Psychology Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize
Deadline: June 1, 2014
The Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize recognizes an article or book chapter judged to provide the most innovative theoretical contribution to social/personality psychology within a given year. In October 2013, the Foundation for Personality and Social Psychology and the Society for Personality and Social Psychology were pleased to announce that henceforth the Society's annual Theoretical Innovation Prize will be known as the Daniel M. Wegner Theoretical Innovation Prize. Dan Wegner, who passed away in 2013, was recognized with the field's most prestigious awards for his highly original scholarship and novel theoretical perspective. The dedication of this award to the memory of Dan Wegner is made possible by a generous donation from Worth Publishers.
Any kind of innovative theoretical contribution can be considered for the prize, including presentations of new theories, new theory-based integrations of disparate areas of inquiry, and significant extensions of existing theories to new areas of inquiry. Theoretical contributions are eligible for the prize regardless of the format of their presentation, whether in stand-along theoretical papers, within conceptually based literature reviews, or in some other written format that highlights conceptual innovation.
The prize recognizes theoretical articles that are especially likely to generate the discovery of new hypotheses, new phenomena, or new ways of thinking about the discipline of social/personality psychology. Theoretical contributions may be judged innovative and generative even before they have accumulated substantial empirical support. Therefore, an article may be judged worthy for the prize even if it runs the risk of empirical invalidation in the future. The emphasis of the prize is on a contribution's conceptual innovation and potential to motivate new research and further conceptual investigation, rather than on its current level of empirical support.
Eligible articles are those published as papers in peer-reviewed journals or as book chapters during the previous calendar year. Books and unpublished manuscripts are not eligible.
Eligible articles may be nominated by their authors or by other members of SPSP. The Nomination Panel may also consider additional eligible papers even if not nominated by their authors or other individuals.
The Award Nomination Panel has the option of not awarding a prize annually.
Eligible articles are those published as papers in peer-reviewed journals or as book chapters during calendar year 2013.
Books, unpublished and ‘in press’ manuscripts are not eligible. ‘Published in 2013’ means, as rightly interpreted, that it appears in print in 2013.
Eligible articles or chapters may be nominated by their authors or by other members of SPSP. The Panel may also consider additional eligible papers even if not nominated by their authors or other individuals.
To nominate an article or chapter for consideration, individuals should send the following to TheoreticalPrize@gmail.com
