First round of teaching funds awarded to faculty initiatives

As an expression of Emory's commitment to quality teaching, money from a new Teaching Fund has been awarded to 23 faculty members. Provost Billy Frye established the $250,000 fund last spring to support faculty in their efforts to change or improve their teaching. The recipients were selected this summer and will begin work this fall. As a condition of the support, the faculty members will share with Emory colleagues what they learn about teaching as they develop new courses, explore how to teach existing courses in new ways and, in some cases, investigate entirely new pathways for learning within the research university environment. The following is a complete listing for those awarded for this semester.
