Teaching Grants

Textbooks/Online Resources Developed:

UH ATIP Award, 2018-2019
The Alternative Textbook Incentive Program (ATIP), is a program offered by the UH libraries. ATIP offers awards to instructors who replace traditional textbooks with open or alternative textbooks in their courses.

UH Student Success Grant, 2011-2014
The UH Student Success Grant was based on proposals submitted for pedagogical ideas to be implemented in the 1000 and 2000 level classes to improve student performance and reduce the number of D's, W's, I's and F's. The grant was for the course Principles of Drug Action (PHAR 2362).
