Certificate for College Teaching
Along with my doctoral degree, I completed Duke University's Certificate for College Teaching, a program that involves coursework, seminars, and peer evaluation of teaching.
Peer evaluations of my teaching:
Preparing Future Faculty (PFF), Duke University, 2017-2018
Mentor: Dr. Gwynn Morris, Meredith College
I was selected for Preparing Future Faculty, a competitive fellowship that allows doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows to explore the ins and outs of faculty life. Fellows visit a 6 local colleges/universities, including an HBCU, a women's college, and a state school. These visits involve speaking with faculty members to understand how they feel about their institution, engaging with students to get their perspectives, and speaking with deans and/or teaching and learning administrators to get a wholistic understanding of the inner workings of the school.
Fellows also choose a faculty member from one of the 6 institutions to act as their direct mentor. My mentor was Dr. Gwynn Morris, an Associate Professor of Psychology at Meredith College. With Dr. Morris, I attended faculty meetings, sat in grant meetings, shadowed her as she taught, and learned more about her motivations for joining a small women's college. She also shared resources for teaching and mentoring and allowed me to guest lecture in her class.
