Leadership in Teaching & Learning Fellowship
McMaster’s Deans and Associate Vice-Presidents have indicated the need for faculty champions who are leaders and mentors to their peers for continued improvement in teaching and learning and enhancement of the student learning experience.
Part of MacPherson Institute’s core business is to engage faculty in scholarly exploration, innovation, implementation, evaluation and dissemination of teaching and learning practices. One concrete way to achieve this goal is through MacPherson Institute’s new 2-year Fellowship program – Leadership in Teaching & Learning. The Fellowship program is grounded in the evidence-based philosophy that faculty involvement is key to leading change that enhances students’ learning experiences in higher education. Leading change in teaching and learning, a contextual and complex process at its core is fostered through collegial efforts and implementation of new ideas and innovations within courses and programs. MacPherson Institute’s Leadership in Teaching & Learning Fellowship program is comprised of two complementary streams: Evaluating Course Impact and Implementing Program Change.
