  • Kellie Forrester (2022-24)

    Lecturer in Economics

  • Bradford Gibbs (2022-24)

    Urry and Comfort Family Senior Lecturer in Economics

    Brad has been co-facilitating the Large Class special interest group, which meets monthly to share best practices, discuss various pedagogical strategies, converse about various challenges facing instructors, and make recommendations to the administration on ways to enhance the student and instructor experience.

    "The Provost Faculty Teaching Fellows Program has contributed meaningfully to my time at Brown. I have enjoyed having the opportunity to reflect on my own pedagogy, build relationships with faculty members from across disciplines, and learn from talented peers who are continually seeking to enhance their craft. I have also found the resources and expertise that reside within the Sheridan Center to be invaluable as I have sought to design and/or redesign my courses and improve the undergraduate learning experience."

  • Emily Hipchen (2022-24)

    Director of Nonfiction Writing, Senior Lecturer in English

    “The Provost’s Teaching Fellowship has been absolutely foundational to my work. Without the Provost’s Teaching Fellowship and the support of the Digital Learning and Design hub, my project would not have been possible. I am deeply grateful to the Fellowship program and hope that the work I’m doing as a Fellow will be helpful to those who are interested in integrating writing in classrooms where it’s usually absent.” 

  • Jeremy Lehnen (2022-24)

    Interim Associate Director for World Languages and Cultures, Director of Brazil Initiative, Lecturer in Language Studies, Lecturer in Portuguese and Brazilian Studies
