ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The University of Michigan has awarded nearly $6.4 million of Third Century Initiative funding to six faculty projects that could transform learning for students.
The Ann Arbor school announced Friday that the second round of transformation grants will go to projects including four that received smaller awards previously. They include nearly $1.9 million for the Gameful Assessment in Michigan Education project.
The Transforming Learning for a Third Century program is part of the Third Century Initiative, established to encourage faculty to develop innovative ideas for enriching student learning as the university prepares to celebrate its bicentennial in two years.
Leaders earmarked $25 million for three levels of grant funding to spur creativity. Transformation grants range from $100,000 to $3 million.
