The Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology and the Graduate College are pleased to introduce our inaugural 2016-2017 Graduate Teaching Fellows. 

  • Ranthony Edmonds, Mathematics Department – STEM Fellow
  • Meaghan Rowe-Johnson, Counseling Psychology Department – CIRTL Fellow
  • Kate Nesbit, English Department – Humanities Fellow
  • Reuben Vyn, Department of Teaching and Learning – Social Science Fellow

These four outstanding graduate students were selected from a large pool of candidates last spring and will work with the Center for Teaching and their home departments to create programming throughout the 2016-2017 academic year. 

Each fellow creates and facilitates a campus-wide pedagogy workshop for graduate students through the Center for Teaching. The fellows also work with their home departments to create a discipline-specific program or tool to help teaching assistants in their departments. 

Based on their own professional development experiences and interests, the Graduate Fellows engage in a year-long “capstone experience” which they will present in April at an end-of-year celebration open to the university community.  

In addition, with the support of Megan Knight, Senior Lecturer in Rhetoric, our teaching fellow faculty consultant, the Graduate Fellows are developing well-crafted teaching philosophy statements to include in their teaching portfolios.

Please visit the Teaching Fellows website to learn more about our teaching fellows and their project plans for this year.
