Sheridan Teagle Grant
The Sheridan Center, in collaboration with Dartmouth's Center for the Advancement of Learning, was awarded a two-year grant from the Teagle Foundation for faculty development initiatives in departments and academic programs. Teagle made this award as part of their "Engaging Evidence" initiative.
The goals of the Sheridan-Teagle project were to:
- provide support for faculty to develop courses that engage students in critical thinking and application, and design assessments that are aligned with: 1) course learning goals; and 2) learning outcomes for concentrations.
- provide support for departments to review their curriculum in relation to departmental goals for student learning outcomes.
- help faculty and departments create opportunities for deep learning and the development of disciplinary expertise in students as they progress through the concentration.
- support faculty and departments in creating sustainable models for curriculum development.
