The summer workshops are a series of three-hour meetings where faculty come together to discuss curriculum development and improvement projects that are designed to enhance the learning of their students. The workshops are funded by the National Institutes of Health RISE and BUILD programs at Xavier University of Louisiana. Each participant gives a 20 to 25 minute talk that provides the rationale for and details of their project. Participants also share data (including methods of assessment), challenges and successes and future directions for their projects. Plans for dissemination of the findings is a key part of every presentation. The 2019 presentations occurred as follows:
