The Transparency in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education project (TILT Higher Ed) is an award-winning national educational development and research project that helps faculty to implement a transparent teaching framework that promotes college students' success. The Project's activities include:
Since its inception at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2009-2010, the project has involved over twenty-five thousand students in hundreds of courses at more than forty institutions in seven countries. Now housed at Brandeis University, the project invites participants from all institutions of higher education in the US and abroad. In 2014-2015, the Transparency Project began partnering with the Association of American Colleges and Universities to focus on advancing underserved students' success in higher education.
The voluntary nature of the project allows any instructor to join at any time by signing up online. Instructors’ identities and information remain confidential, while students’ identities are anonymous.
