Mellon Digital Pedagogy Grantees for 2015-2016

Mellon-Logo-SquareWe’re happy to announce that eight Austin College faculty members have been awarded Mellon Digital Pedagogy grants beginning in the 2015-16 academic year. The awardees join the first cohort of fifteen grantees, meaning that over 20% of AC faculty are now directly involved in the “Collaborative Pedagogies in the Digital Age” initiative. Of course, everyone is involved to some degree because these projects serve as demonstrations and use cases for the entire faculty, and because the resources of the digital pedagogy designer (Mo Pelzel) and the digital pedagogy fellow (Brett Boessen) are always available to the entire AC community. A third round of eight awards will be distributed next year, further extending the impact of the program. (For more info on the first round of projects and the grant in general, check out the “Mellon Foundation Grant” page.)

The new projects span a breadth of academic disciplines and ideas/practices for digital pedagogy. You can read the project proposals of the new grantees by following the links below:

Congratulations to our awardees! We look forward to the innovative pedagogy and enriched learning that you will bring to the Austin College community.
