Michelle Janning receives Fulbright Specialist award
Michelle Janning, assistant dean of faculty and associate professor of sociology, has received a Fulbright Specialist award to teach and assist with faculty development at the Danish Institute for Study Abroad, where she previously spent a semester as a visiting professor. She will return to Copenhagen for a month this summer to work on the project. The Fulbright Specialist program is a short-term version of a regular Fulbright and is designed to award grants to American professors in select disciplines to engage in two- to six-week long collaborative projects with academic institutions in more than 100 nations worldwide. Janning will assist her host institution in operationalizing the pedagogical identity through course redevelopment, faculty coaching and training sessions, and will play a central role in moving the discussion forward on melding a Danish model of instruction with American approaches to teaching and learning found in highly selective liberal arts colleges.
