On Tuesday June 28th, the MacPherson Institute officially welcomed the 2019 cohort of Leadership in Teaching & Learning Fellows and PALAT Grant Recipients. The MacPherson two-year Leadership in Teaching & Learning Fellowship program engages faculty members from across the University in scholarly exploration, innovation, evaluation and dissemination of high impact teaching and learning practices.
The PALAT grant provides financial support for one-year, to encourage scholarly investigations and the development or implementation of a project that enhances McMaster students’ educational experience in one of six priority areas. This year’s cohort spans all of the McMaster faculties and includes projects both at the course and program levels on topics including, community-engaged education, student engagement, technology-enhanced education, interdisciplinary teaching and learning, team-based learning and indigenous health.
We, here at MacPherson, are excited to support each of the recipients through their proposed projects!
