Gifts for Teaching Innovation

Duke's outstanding teachers don't educate students by reading last year's lecture notes from a podium. They innovate the curriculum, stress critical thinking, and connect work in one discipline with conversations in another. These faculty seek ways they can help students take the educational experience beyond the classroom walls.

Donor support can help innovative faculty create opportunities--like forums, field trips, visits from guest lecturers, and exposure to vital new technologies--that inspire students to truly engage with the content they're studying. For students, these "extras' may well be the essence of what makes a Duke education extraordinary.
