Meet the 2016 GAANN Fellows
Five students, David Bassen (Butcher Lab), Ashley Earle (Lammerding Lab), Frank He (Fischbach-Teschl Lab), Derek Holyoak (van der Meulen Lab), and Emmanuel Lollis (Reinhart-King Lab), were awarded 2016 Graduate Assistantships in Areas of National Need (GAANN) fellowships, which focus on developing a fellow's teaching, communication, and leadership skills, as well as providing them with a solid foundation for conducting research. The program provides training in best-practice pedagogical techniques and an introduction to education research. The students are mentored in a practical teaching experience by faculty and trained by Cornell's Center for Teaching Excellence. Congratulations!
