The Howard Hughes Medical Institute Thursday awarded grants totaling $60 million over five years to 37 research universities to improve teaching and learning in science-based undergraduate courses. The recipients were chosen from among 170 institutions that applied for the awards, which are designed to encourage the use of "empirically validated teaching practices," replace standard lab courses with "discovery-based research courses," or improve student persistence in science disciplines.
