Projects for 2011-2012 QEP Curriculum Development Grant Program

Ten projects were been selected for implementation in 2011-2012.  The program supports faculty efforts to enhance existing undergraduate courses or develop new courses that incorporate inquiry-based pedagogy or research practicum training.   Projects range from enhancement of core and major course to broader department and college initiatives which span multiple courses and levels.

Approximately 3,200 students are expected to directly benefit from these courses annually.  Learn more about the 2011-2012 QEP Projects and research-enhanced courses:
