Digital Pedagogy Fellowships
- innovate with technology-enabled pedagogies
- infuse digital competencies into new and existing courses or
- explore the impact of technology through classroom instruction, assignments, and co-curricular experiences.
Faculty fellows work with LITS colleagues to develop or refine specific course assignment(s) that include digital learning approaches. The structure of the funded projects and related activities can take many forms, but bold initiatives and collaboration are especially valued. The fellowships are sponsored jointly by the Dean of Faculty and Library and Information Technology Services.
- Karen Brewer, Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry
- Arathi Menon, Assistant Professor of Art History
Professor Brewer's project will expand an already-existing small library of in-class polls for use in the large lecture-based, introductory chemistry course to increase student engagement. The project will identify software that can support live, in-class polls employing universal design principles and develop questions that help students reflect on their learning in an environment that promotes equity, inclusivity, and belonging.

Professor Menon will explore ways in which digitally-enabled technologies can be used to deepen student engagement with the issue of provenance of art from South and Southeast Asia. Her project will employ 3D technology to reconstruct the original surroundings of a select group of architectural fragments and sculptures to offer students the opportunity to move within the lived spaces of these artifacts virtually. Standing with these artifacts as they once existed in history will aid students in the critical examination of the layered histories of these objects of cultural heritage and global significance and help students better understand their subsequent transformation in the museum context.
