“The IDEA Impact Grants awarded this year fund projects that significantly contribute to our understanding of teaching and learning,” said Ken Ryalls, President of The IDEA Center. “We look forward to the direct impact these projects will have on student learning and faculty success at their institutions, and on IDEA's ability to provide guidance to higher education professionals through the knowledge gained from these projects.”
