FY 2011-2012 Learning Enhancement Grant Program

 

The Learning Enhancement Grant (LEG) Program is an annual, competitive award program sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and administrated through CLEAR. The goal of the LEG Program is to provide faculty with opportunities to implement new teaching strategies in the effort to improve and enrich the student learning experience at the University of North Texas. The LEG program is specifically designed to support faculty who wish to improve access to higher education by redesigning a course to deliver in a blended or fully online format or for those who are using instructional technology to enhance learning in the classroom. The Request for Proposals for this program is generally released in October each year. Awards have been made for the FY 2011-2012 and are listed below.
