Center for Teaching Excellence

Professor at Imaginary Board


Each year in partnership with other campus units the CTE offers teaching innovation grants designed to provide resources and support for faculty who are interested in exploring new and cutting-edge approaches in their teaching in ways that promise to enhance student learning. Funded grantees have the opportunity to participate in a cohort program as a part of the award process.

Inspiring Teaching Excellence and Innovation

Flipped Classroom Development Grant

Are you a faculty member interested in the Flipped Learning Classroom Model that has received so much recent media attention? Are you interested in exploring whether this approach can help improve student engagement and learning in the courses you teach? The Center for Teaching Excellence, with support from the Office of the Provost, invites full-time faculty members to submit proposals for a new grant program to support the development of exemplary courses that employ a flipped learning format.

Announcement for 2016-2016 Grants Coming Soon

Teaching Excellence Grants on Integrative Learning

Many of us can think of activities we would have our students participate in outside of class, but how can we really leverage those activities to maximize their learning benefit? This grant program, co-sponsored with the Office of USC Connect, enables faculty to explore teaching methods and assignments that give students opportunities to reflect on, apply, and synthesize what they learn from multiple experiences and activities.

Next call for grant proposals in Spring 2016

Teaching Leadership Grants

Are you a full-time faculty member on any USC campus who wants to broaden your students' understanding of leadership? Do you want to explore and promote strategies for teaching students about leadership and for developing their leadership skills? The Center for Teaching Excellence, in collaboration with the Carolina Leadership Initiative, has developed this competitive grant program to strengthen leadership education in courses taught at USC.
