The SEAS LInc Faculty Fellowship is an endowed, competitive program which is designed to provide faculty with dedicated time to focus both on substantial pedagogical changes in their course and on the development of plans for evaluating resulting outcomes in learning. A Faculty Review Committee composed of university wide faculty reviewed all proposal submissions and recommended the finalists. The SEAS LInc Faculty Fellowship aims to positively influence learning and teaching at SEAS and to contribute to a growing community focus on intellectual inquiry around teaching and learning. Both Maha and Todd bring rich experience in teaching and learning and a spirit of innovation and progress which will allow them to grapple successfully with the complexity of their proposed pedagogical changes.  Read More
