Flipped Classroom Development Grants

Proposals due Friday, April 17, 2015

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.

Grants of up to $5,000 will be available for single courses and of up to $7,500 for large multi-section courses or a sequence of at least two courses.

Contact Christy Friend at chfriend@mailbox.sc.edu with any questions.

The Center for Teaching Excellence, in collaboration with the Carolina Leadership Initiative, solicits applications for participation in this competitive grant program to strengthen leadership education in courses taught at USC.
