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. TILT aims to advance equitable teaching and learning practices that reduce systemic inequities in higher education through two main activities: 

  • Promoting students' conscious understanding of how they learn 
  • Enabling faculty to gather, share and promptly benefit from current data about students' learning by coordinating their efforts across disciplines, institutions and countries
