Course Transformation Projects

The MSLC partners with faculty and staff members of various departments to create comprehensive course transformation projects and to write grant proposals in support of such projects.  Our role in this process is to provide expertise in research-based instructional practices and to enhance proposals by including supplemental and in-class methods of instructional support.  Summaries of some of our transformation projects are listed below.
