Kate Pride Brown and Todd Michney, both assistant professor in the School of History and Sociology, have been named to the 2021-22 cohort of the Class of 1969 Teaching Fellows.

A competitive program, the fellowships support assistant professors to work on “reflective teaching using insights from evidence-based teaching research and exposure to innovative teaching methods.” Details on the program are available here.  

Following Brown and Michney’s awards, and also the announcement of HSOC Professor Doug Flamming’s 2020 Hesburgh Award Teaching Fellowship, School Chair Eric Schatzberg said, “I continue to be impressed with HSOC faculty’s dedication to the teaching at the highest level.”
