The application deadline for the 2015 MC-Smithsonian Faculty Fellowship is October 6, 2014. An excellent way to learn more about what our faculty learn and do in the fellowship program is to watch the video showcase presentations made by the 2013 cohort.

These videos share the experiences of 2013 M-Smithsonian faculty fellows as they addressed the theme, Forging America's Identity: Critical Encounters and Cross-Cultural Exchange." Faculty fellows developed new assignments for courses that incorporated one or more visits to Smithsonian exhibits and museums. The videos offer insights, experiences and teaching tips developed while implementing new assignments and working with students outside the classroom.

There are ten videos in this group, and their links are noted below. MCTV has been producing the faculty showcase videos since the 2010 cohort, and there are now more than forty videos in that collection. You may be able to find other videos by using the search terms: last name of our faculty fellow + montgomery college + smithsonian + fellowship + video.

Dan Rankin, MCTV producer/director led this year's showcase video production efforts. He was supported by: Rachel Moskal, Mariolis Molina, Brian O'Neal, Heather Welliver and Sam Black. We would like to thank the production team along with MCTV's Scott Youngblood, Bobbi Price and Melissa Pace.

We also recognize our longtime partner at the Smithsonian, Manjula Kumar, program director at the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access. She creates our spring seminar series each year that brings Smithsonian staff and curators together with MC faculty to explore our themes.

For more information about the Fellowship program or application requirements, please contact program coordinator, Mimi Mann at
