Dr. Cristina Percoco has been awarded the Lilly Teaching Conference Travel Fellowship for First Year Faculty, sponsored by VITAL!
The Lilly Teaching Conference Travel Fellowship supports full-time, first-year faculty members at Villanova University to participate in the Lilly Conference, Bethesda, focused on learning, teaching, and assessment in higher education as well as scholarly teaching. This regional teaching conference presents a distinctive professional development opportunity for junior faculty to refine their teaching skills, deepen their understanding of student learning, support their growth as teacher-scholars in the discipline, and network with faculty colleagues across East Coast institutions.The Fellowship may fund up to five awards each year. Dr. Percoco's application strongly communicated and supported her interest in enhancing her teaching skills, particularly those deepening her understanding of student learning, and supporting her growth as a teacher-scholar in the discipline, so she was granted one of the fellowships this year. Congratulations!
