Professors to establish International Federation of National Teaching Fellows

February 22, 2016

Mount Allison University Professor Elizabeth Wells and Arts University at Bournemouth (UK) Professor Kirsten Hardie are working to establish an international resource network called the International Federation of National Teaching Fellows. “The goal of the federation is to mobilize and connect the best minds in teaching around the world, which is a very powerful prospect,” said Hardie. Planned initiatives for the federation include an annual teaching and learning summit, a journal, and a new international teaching award. “We’re also planning to involve students as much as possible in this new global partnership, said Wells. “We hope to build on these types of programs and connect students internationally.” MTA
