Dr. Dan Kahler Innovative Teaching Grants Program
The Dr. Dan Kahler Innovative Teaching Grants Program funds enhanced teaching and learning opportunities not provided by tax dollars. Applicants must demonstrate creative, innovative and effective ways to meet students’ needs, while increasing their motivation to learn and achieving measurable outcomes.
