Teaching Enrichment Grants

The TMSL program of teaching enrichment grants encourages TMSL professors to augment and improve classroom teaching by implementing best educational practices in pedagogy and assessment.  Grant applicants are requested to identify student learning outcomes for each course, utilize formative and summative assessment, and make findings regarding student achievement of learning outcomes.  The Assessment Department and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs collaborate to evaluate the impact of the grant program.
