State and System Course Redesign
Tennessee Board of Regents: Developmental Studies Redesign Initiative (2006 – 2009)

With support from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) established a new systemwide initiative to redesign its developmental math and English curriculum using technology-supported active-learning strategies. The goal was to achieve improvements in learning outcomes as well as reductions in instructional costs. This effort was undertaken in collaboration with 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 awarded a total of $240,000 in grants to participating TBR institutions to support their redesign efforts.
