The mission of The Great Ideas for Teaching (G.I.F.T.) Center is to motivate, sustain, and facilitate innovative teaching and learning practices and to build a culture that values, supports and rewards teaching excellence.
The G.I.F.T. Center is a place to:
- Reflect, share, and connect in ways that energizes our commitment to teaching.
- Foster a culture of inquiry into student learning and its improvement.
- Explore, implement, evaluate, and share innovations in teaching.
- Create a unifying "hub" of resources that are centralized, visible, and easily accessible.
GIFT Fellowship Award
In pursuit of the goals of our mission, each semester the GIFT Center seeks to honor extraordinary instructors that have demonstrated excellence in the classroom with the GIFT Fellowship Award for Teaching Excellence.
