Faculty and Ph.D. Students Will Collaborate on New or Revised Summer Courses

Nine departments received 2022 Summer Course Development Grants from Duke’s offices of Undergraduate Education and Interdisciplinary Studies in partnership with Duke Learning Innovation. Faculty and Ph.D. students will collaborate on the development or redesign of ten summer session courses that will be offered regularly to undergraduates beginning in Summer 2023. Six courses will be revised, while four will be brand new.

These departments will receive a funding package for one Ph.D. student in Summer 2022 to work as a research assistant developing course materials in partnership with one or more faculty members, and for the faculty to receive research funding.

Duke Learning Innovation will provide both formal course design guidance, which may take the form of an intensive kick-off workshop, and ongoing consultation to faculty and RAs.
