Three Students Participate in the National Humanities Center Graduate Student Summer Residency Program

July 21, 2020

Alex Moore, Kristen Laciste and Matthew Tedford were awarded fellowships to participate in the 2020 virtual National Humanities Center Graduate Student Summer Residency Program. The theme was "Passionate Teaching in the Research Environment: How to Create Meaningful Online Learning Experiences."

Since 2015, the National Humanities Center has offered PhD graduate students in the humanities an opportunity to learn about and experience best practices in teaching and learning. Each year, a cohort of students work in small teams to address a relevant theme and create group and individual instructional materials. 

Focusing on the process of translating research to practice, students are given guidance on how to create meaningful learning experiences for any level audience in sessions led by prominent scholars, master educators, and technology experts. Most importantly, the design of the residency requires direct and collegial work among students from different universities and disciplines, creating a much richer network of humanities professionals.
