Curriculum, Instructions, & Assessment


studentsThese awards are intended to promote and support opportunities for faculty to explore innovative or alternative instructional methods (including effective use of technology); revise curricula; or develop assessment strategies intended to strengthen teaching and learning.

Development of a course/courses or academic programs that incorporate community service and the principles of service learning is encouraged. Such courses should engage students in responsible, challenging service and provide structured opportunities for analysis of and reflection on the service experience and the larger context of service in a democratic society. A one-page faculty vita of relevant research, grants, or experiences is required and should be attached to the application.

Applications for projects involving the use of human or animal subjects must include approval from the relevant MU review board (IRB and IACUC, respectively) before funding is distributed to the faculty member.
