Mind the Gap is an opportunity for School District #73 teachers and Thompson Rivers University faculty members to collaborate on projects that support pedagogical and curricular connections between regional K-12 partners and TRU. The intent of this K-16 Partnership Project Grant (Mind the Gap) is to support projects that can:

  • increase knowledge transfer between secondary school teachers and university faculty members with respect to curricula and pedagogical practices in each sector
  • ease transitions for students between grade 12 and 1st year university, and improve retention into 2nd year
  • spread awareness and practice of research-based assessment strategies common to both secondary teachers and university faculty members, and showcase instructional practices that use these assessment strategies. 

Applicants are invited to apply for grants of up to $2000 that satisfy one or more of the criteria listed above.

For more information please contact: Dr. Susan Lidster, Thompson Rivers University.
