Application Process (Archived)

All grant funds have been awarded as of August 1, 2007.

With support from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) has established a new systemwide initiative to redesign its developmental math and English curriculum using technology-supported active-learning strategies. The goal is to achieve improvements in learning outcomes as well as reductions in instructional costs. This effort has been undertaken in collaboration with the National Center for Academic Transformation (NCAT), building on the successful models and lessons learned from NCAT’s Program in Course Redesign and Roadmap to Redesign. A total of $240,000 in grants was awarded to participating TBR institutions to support their redesign efforts.
