Grant Summary

$150,000 over 24 months to strengthen the quality of teaching by engaging campuses in discussions - and use - of research on teaching and learning, and heightening the value that these campuses place on doing and using this kind of research. This project consists of four major initiatives. The first is to train facilitators (Teagle Fellows) to work with groups of faculty on the application of research on learning to the work of teaching. Second, teams of Teagle Fellows and GLCA staff will visit consortium members' campuses to foster conversations about research on teaching and learning. Third, faculty will carry out scholarly research on the impact of the changes on their teaching. Finally, the grant will help the GLCA and the Teagle Fellows to create a communications network.
