Bryan Duff and Marcia Eames-Sheavly have been selected as members of the inaugural group of Cornell’s Engaged Learning + Research Faculty Fellowship Program.
Duff will use the fellowship to help develop a new service-learning course for undergraduate and graduate students.
Eames-Sheavly will interview colleagues in the department to discover and document how they use engaged learning and to highlight the Department as an example of engaged learning excellence.
The core of the Engaged Learning + Research’s mission is a commitment to professional development and capacity building around engaged learning and research pedagogies and methodologies. The Engaged Learning + Research Faculty Fellowship Program offers an opportunity for participants to develop a project that improves engaged learning and research at Cornell and to cultivate a learning community of engaged faculty leaders who are committed to integrating principles and practices of engagement in their own research and teaching, and who will act as advocates of these practices to their colleagues and students.
