The Change One Thing Challenge challenges you to think about the changes you have made recently to increase learning in your courses or to improve students’ attitudes toward learning in your courses. We invite you to let us know about one thing that you changed in 2018 or in the fall of 2017.

If your Change is selected, you will win $700 to pay for part of the cost of attending a Teaching & Learning conference or workshop in 2019. Three prizes will be awarded.

To participate, fill out this form by 11:59 p.m. on November 20 - (

On the form you will be asked to provide:

  1. A description of the change you made to your course or your teaching (1000 characters max). The change must have been implemented during the 2018 calendar year or in Fall of 2017.
  2. A statement of why you implemented this change: what situation provoked it or inspired you, and/or what were you trying to achieve?  (1000 characters max)
  3. A description of the results of the change (1000 characters max). This is not meant to be a statistical analysis comparing pre- and post-change grades, nor is a thorough analysis of survey or interview data expected. Your articulate and thoughtful observations and insights will suffice.

You may submit more than one Change, but an individual may only be awarded one of the three prizes.
