The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences congratulates two of our professors named as 2017 Experience Learning Fellows. Experience Learning is a bold new initiative with the goal of transforming educational experience for undergraduate and graduate students at UT. These professors are making changes with this goal in mind.
Jeff Davis, professor in the Theory and Practice in Teacher Education department, is part of our Educational Interpreting Program. In his 435 Linguistics of American Sign Language course, Davis plans to include fieldwork, practicum, service-learning, simulation and gaming, role playing, undergraduate research and volunteer work.
Karen Boyd, associate professor of practice in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. Boyd plans to incorporate apprenticeships, clinics, fellowship, fieldwork, internships, and student teaching into her ELPS 450, Leadership in Transition Seminar class.
Congratulations to these two professors on your vision and creativity and especially your drive to make positive changes in your classes.
