2023 Leadership in Teaching and Learning Fellowships
Over the next two years, the MacPherson Institute will support four recipients of the 2023 Leadership in Teaching and Learning Fellowship as they explore the usage of social media to improve student learning experiences, assess the impact of course modifications on student outcomes, and examine resource allocation and learning experiences in interdisciplinary programs.
The Leadership in Teaching and Learning Fellows receive $15,000 to fund their project over two years. The program is partially funded by the Paul MacPherson Teaching Fellowship Trust with a goal of supporting the teaching and learning research activities of faculty at McMaster.
“I would like to offer my sincere congratulations to each of this year’s recipients and thank them for contributing their knowledge and expertise to others in our teaching and learning community,” said Lori Goff, director of the Paul R. MacPherson Institute for Leadership, Innovation and Excellence in Teaching. “Taking risks, assessing impact and sharing experiences are crucial parts of our ability to learn, grow and adapt to the challenges and opportunities we face in teaching.”
The 2-year fellowship program is designed to engage faculty in leading change, practicing the scholarship of teaching and learning, and supporting faculty communities that provide mentorship and leadership in teaching and learning.
