TLTC Funded Projects

Engaged learning happens everyday throughout campus at University of Michigan. Much of UM's engaged learning opportunities have been supported by the Transforming Learning for a Third Century (TLTC) Initiative. Below are all of the projects and corresponding faculty and staff that were awarded TLTC grants. You can also hear from U-M faculty about their projects in our project showcase.

Quick Wins and Discovery projects were relatively small-scale, “shovel ready” projects, empowering faculty and staff to explore opportunities beyond the traditional. Transformation projects were aimed at large-scale changes to instruction and/or infrastructure, enabling faculty and staff to implement new learning approaches for sustainable and replicable adoption. The last round of awards were announced in December 2015.
