TLT Faculty Fellows

In order to transform education in positive and enduring ways, it is crucial to understand the challenges that impact our faculty's pedagogy and also student success. Our fellowship program works with faculty to identify these challenges and explores how technology can help overcome them. These partnerships expand the reach of impactful ideas and help shape the Penn State community's future.
