Abstract

The Transparency is Learning and Teaching Project (TILT) is led by Mary-Ann Winkelmes from University of Nevada, Las Vegas and is a partner with the American Association of Colleges and Universities; the project has also been highlighted in The Chronicle of Higher Education and many other publications.
