We congratulate the 9 faculty named as Innovation Fellows and the 7 faculty named as Global Innovation Fellows for the 2014-2015 academic year. Each fellow will develop, redesign, or modify a course or major course component for the 2014-2015 academic year that does one or more of the following: leverages existing and emerging technologies, includes interdisciplinary approaches, or includes significant pedagogical experimentation. These courses will serve as models for pedagogical experimentation at St. Edward’s University. Beginning Monday, May 19, the fellows will participate in a two week Innovation Institute to begin planning their courses.
