Curriculum Innovation

Curriclum Innovation

Keeping classroom content current, keeping it consistent with best practices and research, and engaging our students with lively and relevant instruction are all cornerstones of the Greenhills experience.  The following programs provide the means for faculty to achieve these goals:

  • The DeLay family created the Pauline McMillan DeLay Endowment which supports an annual award honoring Mrs. DeLay’s classroom experience as a teacher and her desire to inspire and recognize faculty in their continuous efforts to bring the classroom alive, keep their content current and relevant for their students and continue to expand their teaching knowledge.
  • Since its inception in 2001, the Paulus Faculty Growth and Learning Program has provided funds for faculty professional development including the creation of new courses and innovative approaches to existing classes.
  • Through Summer Curriculum Development grants, faculty members are eligible for funding and are encouraged to dedicate some of their summer to collaborate on curriculum projects individually or with their colleagues.
