  • BLAISE Consortium & Teagle Grant (May 2014) 

          Call for IWU Faculty Representatives

In 2013, six liberal arts institutions - Beloit, Lawrence, Augustana, Illinois Wesleyan, St. Norbert’s and Elmhurst, or BLAISE - established a consortium named BLAISE. The goal of BLAISE is to assist each other in shaping curriculum and pedagogies that reflect 21st-Century opportunities and needs, while underscoring our traditional liberal arts identities and values. The Teagle Foundation has awarded a $280,000 grant to four colleges in the consortium, including IWU, for creation of online learning modules to enhance student learning.

CETAL has invited the university community to submit proposals for creative uses of Glass in teaching and learning, research, entrepreneurial initiatives and more.
