The University of Wisconsin System has selected Hilary Snow and Megan Orcholski of UWM as 2023-2024 Wisconsin Teaching Fellows & Scholars.
Snow teaches art history and Asian studies in the Honors College. Orcholski teaches in the Department of Communication.
Wisconsin Teaching Fellows and Scholars, who are nominated by their institution’s provosts, must demonstrate excellent teaching skills and have a curiosity about student learning. The yearlong program begins in mid-June and culminates with a research presentation at the annual Spring Conference on Teaching and Learning in Madison.
The program provides UW System faculty and teaching academic staff a unique opportunity to collaborate with other exceptional teachers from across the UW System and from various disciplines. In addition to discussing influential literature, participants are guided through systematic research focused on improving student learning through a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning project.
