Grant Summary

$15,000 over 6 months to engage in an intensive planning process that will begin with a day-long meeting of the Deans of its member colleges, designed to identify the specific project focus. Possibilities include: (1) building on the results of the consortium's Teagle-funded project that focused on the development of innovative teaching practices informed by research on how people learn; (2) a project on how current definitions of faculty work affect the use of "high impact" teaching practices and what changes in curriculum and elsewhere might foster the development of such practices; and (3) the development of courses by teams. Once the focus of the project has been agreed on, a team will be charged with preparing a proposal for an implementation grant.
