“I’m excited that my students will be able to use archival materials to study design history and persuasive communication, and I’m excited to learn more about the archives and to represent Grady College,” Smith said.
The program began with a retreat that highlighted the goals and key components of “archives-centered learning.” Smith and the fellows will meet monthly as a cohort for round table discussions, workshops and speaker presentations. The Special Collections Libraries will also host a Maymester Institute to focus on course planning, design and development for the 2016 fall semester.
According to the Center for Teaching and Learning, “The Special Collections Libraries Faculty Fellows program provides a workshop to build wonderful, engaging, and exciting archives-centered faculty development experience in a convivial and collaborative environment that values experimentation and reflection.”
