Provost's Teaching Innovation Prize Winners

Five outstanding projects from across campus have been selected as winners of the annual Provost's Teaching Innovation Prize (TIP). You can learn more about these projects at the opening to the 2017 Enriching Scholarship conference. At 10:00am on Monday, May 1, in the Michigan Union's Rogel Ballroom, Vice Provost James Hilton will present the winning projects. Prior to the ceremony, a 9:00am poster fair and strolling breakfast in the same location offer the U-M community a chance to meet the faculty teams behind the TIP projects, as well as teams that have conducted projects through the Investigating Student Learning grant funded by CRLT and the Office of the Vice Provost for Global Engagement and Interdisciplinary Academic Affairs. Registration is appreciated.
