Nellie Mae Education Foundation, vocal supporter of integrating skills and knowledge, grants CCR

It is with great pleasure that we announce a supportive funding grant from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation (NMEF) in support of the Center for Curriculum Redesign (CCR). Nicholas Donohue, President and CEO, stated in his letter of support, “…producing clearer, more appropriate renditions of educational outcomes is central to steering educational systems…”

The NMEF is a vocal supporter of integrating skills and knowledge: “Through student-centered approaches, learners are actively engaged in authentic tasks that develop both a solid base of knowledge in traditional subject areas and “new basic” skills – problem solving, critical thinking and communication. Learning opportunities can be tailored to the learner’s needs and interests.”
