External Grants to support out efforts:

Green, L., McDaniel, S., Strayer, J, McCormick, N., & Rowell, G. (2013-2015) Modules for Teaching Statistics with Pedagogies using Active Learning (MTStatPAL), NSF.  We will be developing additional lessons for an introductory statistics class. Amount: Approximately $175,000  This project will provide all-inclusive modules that will help inexperienced teachers facilitate active learning lessons.

Internal grants to support our efforts:

Green, L., McDaniel, S., & Rowell, G. (2012) Instructional Technologies Development Grant. Active Classroom Lesson Modules for MATH 1530.  This is a multi-part, collaborative, proposal to develop technology-facilitated learning materials which will help instructors effectively use active-learning during class time to teach important concepts in introductory statistics.  Funded: 6-course reassigned time (3 instructors for 2 terms plus summer stipend), which is the equivalent of  $24062.97.

McDaniel, S. (2014). MTSU Instructional Development Grant.  A major goal of this project is to encourage these instructors to adopt successful class activities and assessments that address all of the GAISE recommendations and to do so in a way that increases the uniformity of the class experience across the many sections and the different versions of this course. (One 4-hour reassigned time, which is the equivalent of $2800).
