With support from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) has established a new system-wide initiative to redesign its developmental math and English curriculum using technology- supported, active-learning strategies. The goal is to achieve improvements in learning outcomes as well as reductions in instructional costs. This effort has been undertaken in collaboration with the Education Commission of the States and the National Center for Academic Transformation (NCAT), building on the successful models and lessons learned from NCAT’s Program in Course Redesign and Roadmap to Redesign. The initiative has awarded a total of $240,000 in grants to six TBR institutions to support its redesign efforts.
In addition, the project is examining current state and system policy to identify barriers that facilitate or impede innovation in the delivery of developmental studies and examining how developmental studies can be incorporated into state P-20 efforts.
