Library Google Glass Project: RFP

In order to support innovation at Stetson University, the duPont-Ball Library will provide one Google Glass to a Stetson faculty/staff member and one Google Glass to a student to complete a project over one semester. Because of limited funding, this is a competitive process. The library will rely on the material submitted by the applicant to evaluate the project. The chosen proposals will be those that best articulate the project as outlined below. All current Stetson University students, faculty, and staff are eligible to apply. Projects may be scholarly or artistic, but all must have a purpose that supports Stetson’s teaching and learning mission.

The library is announcing this now to give applicants a chance to develop proposals over the summer. We will repeat the announcement at the beginning of fall semester with a SEPTEMBER 5, 2014 deadline for proposals.

By submitting an application, all applicants agree to return the Google Glass at the end of the semester and to present the project in an open forum.
