Thirteen Resident Instruction Faculty and 2,640 Enrollments in Provosts' Learning Collaboratory for Course/Curriculum Redesign and Research on Learning
Faculty were invited to apply for a Provosts' Learning Collaboratory Award to support course redesigns of three types: (1) curriculum redesigns for multiple courses or a single large enrollment course; (2) mini course redesigns supporting a redesign of some aspect of a course; and (3) research grants to investigate learning and teaching at CSU with the intention to apply what was learned.
Provost's Learning Collaboratory Awards were provided to the following departments: Chemistry; English; Life Sciences; Mathematics; Mechanical Engineering; Economics; Natural Resources; Literature, and Culture; Psychology; and Communication Studies.
State of Success
"Support from TILT and the Provost's Collaboratory program provided us with crucial expertise (particularly from Karen Falkenberg) and funding as we pursued a major overhaul of the English major. We drew on Karen's familiarity with establishing and moderating focus groups to gather data from faculty, students, and interdisciplinary partners, data which we are now using to develop a new, freshman seminar for incoming majors and to revise the larger curriculum."
