Elaine Lin selected for the Lilly Teaching Fellows Program

Jhih-Syuan (Elaine) Lin, assistant professor of advertising in the Advertising and Public Relations Department at The University of Georgia's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, was selected for UGA's Center for Teaching and Learning's 2014-2016 Lilly Teaching Fellows Program.

Each spring semester, 10 tenure-track assistant professors who are recipient of a Ph.D. or terminal degree in their discipline or profession and who are in their first, second or third year at UGA are selected for the Lilly Teaching Fellows Program.

The goals of the CTL Lilly TeachingFellows Program are to provide opportunities for the Fellows to further develop skills associated with effective teaching; provide opportunities for the Fellows to further develop their ability to appropriately balance teaching with the research and service roles required by a research university; provide the Fellows information concerning the instructional policies, resources, and services at The University of Georgia; offer a support system for the Fellows for sharing of ideas with colleagues from other disciplines who may have similar interests and who face similar challenges; develop the instructional skills of the Fellows through exposure to and interaction with faculty mentors who are master teachers; provide the Fellows an opportunity to complete an instructional project designed to strengthen courses and teaching methods in their academic department; and reinforce an instructional environment that honors and recognizes dedicated teaching scholars; values a synergistic relationship between teaching, research, and service; and promotes a learning community spirit on a large campus.
