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. Participants in (Re)Design projects are expected to attend teaching development activities throughout the year to develop effective learning-centered teaching approaches. In the past year, new individual Faculty-wide initiates have also been undertaken in order to help transform teaching and learning in more specific domains.
