February 21, 2023
The UCI Office of the Vice Provost of Teaching and Learning announced the inaugural class of Faculty Academy for Teaching Excellence (FATE) fellows, which includes Professor Penelope Collins.
FATE is a community of faculty from across campus with a shared desire to promote student success through teaching. Members of FATE will meet regularly to discuss all aspects of the teaching experience, from pedagogical techniques, to course policies, to departmental and university wide issues. These meetings will provide a forum for rapid dissemination of successful approaches to challenges faced by instructors and students.
Supported by the Division of Teaching Excellence and Innovation, each year FATE members will lend their expertise to advise campus leadership on a set of targeted projects that advance teaching excellence.
Acceptance into FATE is an honor bestowed on faculty who have a demonstrated record of developing learning environments that foster student growth. For more information, including a list of faculty in the inaugural class and summaries of current projects, please visit the FATE webpage.
