Grant Summary

$150,000 over 30 months to work with member institutions to re-structure introductory courses so that they more effectively develop students' higher order thinking, and re-structure faculty work to ensure the sustainability of these courses. Research on learning demonstrates the value of teaching students higher order thinking skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, rather than just content knowledge, and doing so from the beginning of their college careers.
