CNDLS is pleased to recognize Georgetown faculty members Meredith McKittrick and Anne Rosenwald, who were recently honored with the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Meredith McKittrick (History), who is known by many for her popular course on African History, is a 2010-2011 Faculty Fellow with the Doyle Initiative. Doyle Faculty Fellows work to integrate themes of tolerance and diversity into their course curricula. This spring, Meredith is integrating Doyle themes into her course Comparative History of the United States and South Africa.
Anne Rosenwald (Biology) has regularly been an Engelhard Faculty Fellow and is currently teaching an Engelhard course. Engelhard Faculty Fellows collaborate with campus health professionals to link academic course content to health and wellness topics. In addition, Anne is currently partnering with CNDLS on the GenomeSolver project. She aims to create an online community of genomic annotators, including science faculty, their students, and genomic experts from organizations such as the J. Craig Venter Institute. This project focuses specifically on sequences from the Human Microbiome Project—the microbes that live in and on humans.
Congratulations, Anne and Meredith! We look forward to continuing our work with you.
