The Doyle Faculty Fellows Program supports full-time faculty in designing or redesigning an undergraduate-level course in order to engage aspects of difference, equity, and inclusion. Fellows in the program develop inclusive pedagogies and create diversified course content to foster productive classroom dialogue on critical issues such as culture, gender, race, and religion. The program transforms the classroom experience for both faculty and students, allowing for deeper dialogue on diversity and difference as faculty employ cutting-edge techniques in teaching and learning. 

Doyle faculty fellows benefit from collaboration across campus, as part of a faculty cohort supported by the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship. The program brings together faculty from different disciplines for in-depth discussions on diversity in higher education during monthly meetings over the course of the year. Fellows are also empowered to co-create a teaching community and act as resources for one another on questions of inclusive pedagogy.

Information will be available soon about applications for the 2021-22 academic year.

The Doyle cohort experience was an invaluable resource for developing my pedagogy, expanding the substantive offerings in my courses, and building collegial bridges with colleagues from around the university. By focusing on both process and content, the Doyle cohort provided a critical dimension that is often lacking in our relatively isolated faculty work lives.

One of the richest components of the Doyle fellowship is the diversity of the fellows. Talking about teaching across disciplines had a tremendous impact on me. Engaging in monthly case studies helped stretch my thinking about pedagogy and learning, and illuminated opportunities in my teaching.

“Working with the Doyle cohort was an extremely valuable and enlightening experience. Promoting diversity is both urgent and challenging in the current political environment. The fellows came to the program with a whole range of personal and professional experiences on this matter. My interactions with them deepened my commitment to the project of promoting diversity through teaching.”

A new sense of connection has been one of the most significant and cherished outcomes of my time in the fellowship. It was enriching and delightful to work with such a generous and eclectic group of colleagues, representing such varied disciplines and roles at Georgetown. Many became friends, all became trusted colleagues.

I can only describe this year as transformative. You all have helped me to expand my views on education and shown me how important our roles are here at Georgetown. I am deeply sad that this experience is coming to an end, but I am excited to see how it will continue to positively impact my future classes.

I learned so much, expanded my horizons, and came away with renewed energy and deeper understanding of my role in making the university an inclusive and diverse place. The program really excels at community building, and having a vibrant interdisciplinary group where it felt ‘safe’ to talk openly about our successes and failures was incredibly supportive.
