News & Announcements

The First Digital Teaching Fellows!

In a joint effort between Academic Affairs and the Office of Digital Teaching and Learning, we are happy to announce the first Digital Teaching Fellows cohort has officially been selected! The full list of faculty will be announced shortly in Loyola Today, and will be updated here.

Digital Teaching Fellows are full-time faculty members who are committed to deepening their understanding of how technology affects teaching and learning. In collaboration with the ODTL, each of the cohort's participants will design and conduct an applied pedagogic research project for one of their courses focusing on the intersection of technology and teaching online or in the classroom.

To learn more, please head to the Digital Teaching Fellows website, and we will post more updates on the great work this cohort is doing in the near future!
