LBJ Institute for the Improvement of Teaching and Learning.
The LBJ Institute for the Improvement of Teaching and Learning was established in 1985 by the School of Education at Southwest Texas State University. Its primary focus is to promote collaboration between the university and area public schools for the purpose of strengthening the educational programs in both settings. Institute staff have worked with area educators to identify priority needs and concerns. Collaborative projects to address these topics are supported by the Institute through competitive mini-grants offered each semester. In addition, the Institute coordinates a variety of training and professional development activities and preparation of proposals to seek external funding to support collaborative efforts. Projects have included research on instruction and curriculum development, classroom management, teacher training, and socio-educational issues. Appended materials include lists of collaborative topic projects and awards, of conferences and workshops held by the Institute, and of 1988-89 grant activity, and conference evaluation sheets. (MSE)
