HSS Faculty Fellows

UNC Faculty Assessment Fellows

The UNC Faculty Assessment Fellows serve as liaisons between the Assessment Office and their respective colleges. Assessment Fellows provide consultation, guidance, and professional development on program-level assessment of student learning. During their inaugural year in 2011/2012, the Assessment Fellows conducted a listening tour of faculty perceptions regarding assessment and developed and taught workshops on various assessment related topics. In 2012-2013, the Assessment Fellows launched the Assessment Leadership Institute, which provides professional development for faculty teams to develop assessment plans. They continue to serve as consultants and are available to work with individual faculty, programs, and departments.

UNC Faculty Teaching and Learning Fellows

Teaching and Learning Fellows collaborate with staff in the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) to more accurately assess and respond to the needs of faculty in their roles as educators. A major goal of the program is to share the expertise of excellent teachers right here on our campus by facilitating interdisciplinary conversations about what works and what doesn't. To meet this goal, Fellows develop college and campus-wide workshops, and provide one-on-one consultations to faculty in their colleges who would like more targeted advice. Each Fellow also completes an independent research project related to the scholarship of teaching and learning. More information on UNC Faculty Teaching and Learning Fellows.
