Two Professors Selected as 2015 Governor's Teaching Fellows


(June 11, 2015) — Armstrong State University Assistant Professor of Childhood and Exceptional Student Education Anne Katz and Assistant Professor of Mathematics Tricia M. Brown were recently selected as 2015 Governor's Teaching Fellows for the Summer Symposium program at the University of Georgia.

As two of only 14 faculty members selected from institutions of higher education across the state, Katz and Brown were chosen after a highly competitive application and selection process.

The Governor's Teaching Fellows Program was established in 1995 by Georgia Governor Zell Miller to provide the state's higher education faculty with expanded opportunities for developing important teaching skills. Governor Miller envisioned that this program would address faculty members' growing need to use emerging technologies and instructional tools in the classroom.

The Governor's Teaching Fellows Program is an outreach program of the Institute of Higher Education at the University of Georgia. To improve the quality of instruction in Georgia's colleges and universities, the Governor's Teaching Fellows Program assumes the complex challenge of moving college faculty members to the leading edge of instructional practice.
