Rhodes Named Lilly Fellow
Professor Jesse Rhodes is one of eight faculty selected campus-wide by the Center for Teaching and Faculty Development to be a 2012-2013 Lilly Teaching Fellow.
The Lilly Fellowship is a competitive award program, established in 1986, that enables promising junior faculty to cultivate teaching excellence in a special yearlong collaboration. The fellows assess their teaching and their students' learning through classroom visits; review of course materials; and student feedback. Lilly Teaching Fellows attend an intensive retreat and bi-weekly seminar sessions on college teaching, design and implement a course design project, and work with mentors to anticipate many of the challenges and rewards of faculty life at UMass Amherst.
