The Offices of Academic Affairs and Instructional Techonology, the Center for Teaching Excellence, and the Munday Library are pleased to announce the Innovation Fellowship and Global Innovation Fellowship recipients for 2015-2015. Please join us in congratulating the 2015-2016 fellows, Richard Bautch, Mary Kopecki-Fjetland, Katherine Lopez, Jimmy Luu, Christopher Micklethwait, Rachael Neal, Kristin Cheyenne Riggs, Alexandra Robinson, Jason Rosenblum, and Gary Slater. See the 2015-2016 Fellows page on this blog for more information about these fellows with abstracts of their proposed course redesigns.
This fellowship supports faculty with the resources and expertise needed to experiment with the pedagogy in a course. We consider this fellowship a marker of significant potential and achievement; these fellows are not only pursuing valuable pedagogical innovation but also are contributing in significant ways to the university’s mission and goals.
The Innovations in Teaching Committee (composed of a faculty representative from each school), as well as the Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence, the Director of Munday Library, and the Director of Instructional and Emerging Technology reviewed all proposals, ranked them by selection criteria–significance of innovation; connection to the Holy Cross mission and strategic goals of the university; feasibility of the proposed experiment; potential impact on student learning; and planned public dissemination and potential for scholarship and publication based on this experiment–and made recommendations as to which proposals should be accepted.
All Fellows will participate in the Innovation Institute, May 18-29, 2015, offered by the Center for Teaching Excellence, the Munday Library, and the Office of Instructional Technology.
