2011 Summer Grant Reports

Curriculum Development Grants - Summer 2011

Seventeen faculty members received grants to develop curricula for general education courses in Perspectives themes.  The purpose of these grants was to help the instructors more effectively address the General Education learning outcomes and integrate their courses more effectively into their themes.  A team of two-five faculty worked on each course and developed materials, methods, content modules, and assignments that could be used by any instructor teaching that course.
