Background

In 2006, the Deputy Provost (Student Life & Learning) of McGill University launched a (Re)Design Initiative with the goal of transforming the student learning experience by channeling major university resources to a single project. This initiative funds projects that encourage faculty to explore creative and effective ways of engaging students in the classroom. An important aspect of these projects is that they foster transformative rather than incremental change for teaching and learning by combining university wide resources from all units that provide support.
