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.
 
Maha and Todd will follow this year’s fellows, Rob Howe and Rob Wood. Rob Howe devoted his fellowship to the redesign of AM101, Statistical Inference for Scientists and Engineers. Rob Wood devoted his fellowship to the development of a new course, Engineering the Acoustical World. 
 

Eric Mazur, Faculty Director of SEAS LInc, commented that the SEAS LInc Faculty Fellowships are a solid expression of the importance that SEAS places on supporting faculty in their endeavor to provide students with an outstanding educational experience.
