The Course Transformation Project (CTP) invites faculty interested in finding ways to make large lecture-based introductory classes more interactive and engaging to attend one of three CTP informational sessions this month.

Sessions will be offered in Altgeld Hall 225:

  • 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8
  • 1 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14
  • 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 24

Faculty selected to participate could receive up to $12,000 to incorporate multimedia-rich online learning, small group projects and experiential learning into eligible courses.

Informational sessions will provide an overview of the project expectations, timeline, allowable uses for funding and support available from the Office of Student Engagement and Experiential Learning and others.

The Course Transformation Project is a Vision 2020 initiative to enhance student attainment of NIU baccalaureate student learning outcomes and to increase student opportunities for experiential learning through academic enrichment.
