ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The University of Michigan has awarded $5 million to three projects that could help transform learning for students.

The Ann Arbor school says the awards are from the Transforming Learning for a Third Century grant program, the student learning arm of the Third Century Initiative.

The projects will focus on writing-to-learn in large courses, case-based approaches to sustainability training and field-based experiences about environmental topics.

James Holloway, vice provost for global and engaged education, says in a statement that through the projects students “can learn to be creative, to communicate and work in teams, and to incorporate social and ethical considerations in their work.”

Leaders have allocated $25 million to fund projects of various size and complexity. Transformation grants, the largest, range from $300,000 to $3 million.
