Even though principals do not directly educate students, their activities and decisions shape the teaching and learning that takes place in their schools. Understanding the relationships between how principals allot their time and educational outcomes could improve their training, selection, development, and evaluation. The main goals of our Faculty Innovation Grant are to 1) document how principals use their time, 2) examine differences in principal time use across various school settings, and 3) link principal time use to behavioral, emotional, and academic outcomes.
NEH has announced the 2016 Summer Stipend Competition. Below you will find a short summary of the program. The NEH website includes the full guidelines, FAQs and sample proposals.

Lehigh is limited to two nominations, and therefore we will be reviewing proposals through an internal evaluation process.

With the FIG funding I obtained a longarm computerized quilting machine to do outline (in-the-ditch) quilting of my digital tiling prints to produce art quilts. Freehand in-the-ditch-quilting follows the form of a design, usually close to the seams of pieced quilts. In this case, the “pieced” elements are individual units that are inspired by Islamic tiles called girih. My “piecing” is done in individual layers in Photoshop – typically as many as six hundred or more tiles. The resulting quilt is executed on whole cloth.
