Instructors seek to enhance student success by exploring intersection of classroom space, technology and pedagogy

The Mosaic Faculty Fellows program is a key component of the Mosaic Initiative. The program provides an opportunity across two semesters for faculty to explore and reflect on active learning approaches with other Mosaic Fellows, as well as to contribute to the development of learning spaces across Indiana University.

During this time as a Mosaic Fellow, I plan to utilize the active learning classrooms and fully understand the new technology that is being incorporated into my pedagogy.

The new Fellows began their tenure at the Mosaic Institute on May 9 in Bloomington and will finish at the end of the spring 2019 semester. 

The Mosaic initiative now has 80 Fellows across all IU campuses. “With our Fellows researching and teaching active learning methodologies all across the state, Mosaic is fulfilling one of its fundamental goals: to transform the classroom experience for students and faculty,” said Stacy Morrone, IU associate vice president for learning technologies. “This network of faculty leaders—our Fellows—are leading the charge to create a better learning experience for all.”

“I applied for the Mosaic Fellowship so I could try to make a difference in teaching and help the university with active learning classrooms,” explained Todd Shelton, lecturer in the Department of Human-Centered Computing. “During this time as a Mosaic Fellow, I plan to utilize the active learning classrooms and fully understand the new technology that is being incorporated into my pedagogy.”
