Students use this archive in class and for homework assignments to learn more about the structure of Texas German. Watch the video.

Submitted materials were judged by a panel of experts including faculty winners from previous IITAP experts in instructional design, and members of the Academy of Distinguished Teachers.

ITAP is sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment.
