Omar Isaac Asensio, assistant professor in the Georgia Tech School of Public Policy, was recently selected to join the upcoming Class of 1969 Teaching Fellows Program. The Teaching Fellows experience is designed to gather together an interdisciplinary group of assistant professors for pedagogically focused support and professional development.
Asensio will join other Georgia Tech cohorts in a mission to broaden perspectives with insight into evidence-based best practices and exposure to new and innovative teaching methods. In addition, Class of 1969 Teaching Fellows are given access to $1,000 in funds that can be used to support the development of a small project or for other teaching-related resources. Many Class of 1969 Teaching Fellows also use this as an opportunity to develop and pilot initiatives that can be used as the basis for the education component of major award applications (such as the NSF Career Award).
