In Summer 2020, I was a recipient of the Emory College Online Teaching Services (ECOTS) Fellowship.
Responsibilities for this position included guiding a faculty cohort (of 36 fall course instructors) through a three week training that covered the essentials of online course design, digital pedagogy, and the Emory College Online model.
In Fall 2019 - Spring 2020, I was a recipient of the Emory Advanced Graduate Teaching Fellowship.
As a part of this fellowship, I worked on a Teaching-As-Research Project measuring the role of curiosity in student engagement and performance. I was selected to presented a poster at the CIRTL In-Person Network Meeting that was supposed to be held at Georgia Tech in March 2020, but was cancelled due to Covid-19.
Instead, I presented my work on the TAR project in the Advanced Graduate Teaching Fellowship Symposium held on Tuesday May 5th, 2020, virtually via Zoom.

In Fall 2019, as a part of the Emory Advanced Graduate Teaching Fellowship. I completed the Center for the Integration of Research Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) Network's Online Course An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching with distinction.
A course description and a copy of the certificate can be found below:
“An Introduction to Evidence-Based Undergraduate STEM Teaching” is an open, online course designed to provide future STEM faculty, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows with an introduction to effective teaching strategies and the research that supports them. The goal of the eight-week course is to equip the next generation of STEM faculty to be effective teachers, thus improving the learning experience for the thousands of students they will teach.
