Grant Summary

$125,000 over 27 months to expand and sustain a program focused on deepening preparation of graduate students for teaching and enhancing the quality of undergraduate learning in classes taught by faculty and graduate student participants. Eight faculty-graduate student teams, drawn from the Department of Literatures, Cultures and Languages and from one outside department, will meet regularly in seminars to engage with readings focused on higher education generally, liberal education and the humanities specifically, and the literature of assessment. The project plans to document its work extensively, culminating in a major dissemination effort focused on developing new teaching paradigms.
