About the Fellowship Program

The Faculty Forward Fellowship Program provides intensive pedagogical approaches, such as active learning and problem-based learning, combined with the power of technology to increase student engagement and learning.

The Faculty Forward Fellowship Program is developed, implemented, and facilitated by faculty and instructional designers. The program models best practices in online, face-to-face, and blended learning modalities by offering both online and face-to-face components. The faculty fellows who complete the program will push the boundaries for what is possible in online and digital learning which is critical to the vision of the Whiting School of Engineering/Engineering for Professionals and Johns Hopkins University. The faculty who participate in the program will be better equipped with the strategies and tools needed in today’s ever-evolving higher education climate.
