In 2006, the Deputy Provost (Student Life & Learning) and Teaching and Learning Services launched the first (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.
The Nexus between Teaching and Research/Scholarship Project (the “Nexus Project”) is a university‐wide initiative aiming to improve the links between undergraduate teaching and research/scholarship. Since the Nexus Project began in 2008, it has focused on exploring how instructors can integrate teaching and research/scholarship to benefit student learning within undergraduate courses.
