Teaching Grants Showcase

Through our partnership with UT Colleges and University Libraries, this grant provides seed-money for a year-long project in creating innovative course designs to improve student engagement and learning. Faculty implement  course redesign and evidence-based teaching and learning practices, enhancing undergraduate education in particular, for diversity and inclusion, especially in core lower division, general education, or high-enrollment courses.
