CRISTEL 2024 Course Redesign Grants

MTEI requests proposals for the Course Redesign Initiative to Support Teaching for Engaged Learning (CRISTEL) program. CRISTEL provides funding of up to $45,000 over a period of two years to redesign core engineering courses. Redesign projects must significantly increase the use of active learning or other research-based pedagogies that improve student engagement and learning.

Proposal deadline: March 4, 2024. Submission of a short letter of intent by February 15th extended to February 19th to verify that the proposed course and pedagogy are eligible is strongly encouraged.

Eligibility: Only core undergraduate courses that are degree requirements for a major in the College of Engineering are eligible. Preference is given to ENGRD and ENGRI courses; large-enrollment courses; courses at the first-year, sophomore, and junior levels; and/or courses required by the college of all majors. New or redesigned ENGRI courses that introduce students to more than one major are especially encouraged. Graduate courses, elective courses, and senior design courses are not eligible.
