Georgetown’s Engelhard Project has been selected to continue in a third round of the Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP) Project. BTtoP is sponsored by the Charles Engelhard Foundation and the Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation, and developed in partnership with the Association of American Colleges and Universities.
Five other institutions will be joining the BTtoP Project for the 2010-2012 round: Oterbein College, the State University of New York-College at Cortland, Tufts University, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Wagner College.
In the next two years, the Engelhard Project will build on its established curriculum infusion initiative to deepen institutionalized knowledge about linkages between psychosocial development and other dimensions of learning. These formalized inquiries will link ongoing assessment of curriculum infusion to other high impact practices (such as civic engagement and undergraduate research and elsewhere in the co-curriculum) as well as to critical sites of learning in practice after graduation. Inquiries and findings will be made visible through an annual institute and virtual environment for studying the evidence of engaged learning.
The Engelhard Team is very excited to continue its great work and continue to have an impact on students’ lives!
