Dr. Progyan Basu has been selected for the 2014 Undergraduate Studies Faculty Fellows at the University of Maryland. During the 2014-15 academic year, the Undergraduate Faculty Fellows will participate in a faculty learning community that will consider the challenges and opportunities in teaching large enrollment courses and seek to understand and define these courses as uniquely important for student success.
Large enrollment courses are among the first courses new students take at UMD. To the extent that these courses introduce students to college level work, they also ideally model what we expect of students. This program will be led by Ann Smith, Assistant Dean, and Lisa Kiely, Assistant Dean, in the Office of Undergraduate Studies. Their work will include collaboration with Associate Provost Ben Bederson and the Teaching & Learning Transformation Center (TLTC), along with consideration of how learning analytics may support teaching and learning.
It is an honor for Dr. Progyan Basu to represent the Smith School of Business and be recognized for his contributions to improving the learning experience of University of Maryland students.
