SPH2020 Teaching Innovation grants

The Teaching Innovation Grant is one of the ways we encourage innovative teaching at UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. Students vote for faculty members who “improve the learning environment by integrating new technologies, engaging students in interactive activities, and introducing and incorporating progressive curriculum ideas into the classroom.” Each recipient receives $1,000 to use towards professional development.
