Grant Summary

$280,000 over 36 months to collaboratively design courses and sets of modules, to include such areas as critical media literacy (communication and education); teacher education assessment (education); community-based learning (economics and management); and laboratory equipment modules (biology, chemistry, biochemistry, and chemical engineering). They will also build cohorts of “Digital Faculty Fellows” who will mentor each other and generate interest among colleagues to pursue hybrid course development opportunities that enrich the academic experience while sharing costs and using classroom and laboratory facilities more efficiently.
