The MC-Smithsonian Faculty Fellowship program is pleased to welcome 11 new fellows to its 2018 cohort. The group represents wide-ranging interests and disciplines and will consider the 2018 theme: We The People: America's Grand and Radical Experiment with Democracy.

The cohort includes: Eddy Enriquez Arana (World Languages/Spanish, Rockville), Rachel Bonaparte (Communications, Rockville), Keith Elphick (English, Rockville), Osmond B. Farrell (Communications, Rockville), Alejandro Leopardi (English, Germantown), Raquel Licamele (English and Reading, Rockville), David Lott (ELAP) Takoma Park/Silver Spring), Monica Mallini (Engineering, Germantown), Brett Pelham (Psychology, Germantown), Deborah Solomon (Media arts & Technology, Rockville), and David Sowards (English, Germantown).

Faculty Fellows spend the spring 2018 semester delving into museum learning and pedagogy and traveling to the Smithsonian for a seminar series and specially designed tours featuring Smithsonian curators and educators. During the fall 2018 semester, they will implement new theme-based lessons and assignments that museum objects and collections with required course content. In the Fellowship, students and faculty experiment with time-tested and novel pedagogical approaches to help MC students formulate their own questions, generate knowledge, and develop more sophisticated approaches to critical thinking and problem-solving.

The MC-Smithsonian Faculty Fellowship is the product of a unique collaboration between the Paul Peck Humanities Institute and the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access. It is the first of its kind for the Smithsonian Institution and a community college. The Fellowship is the signature program of the Institute and on May 4, 2017, celebrated the 20-year anniversary of the partnership with the Smithsonian in a reception at the Smithsonian Castle. More than 170 professors have participated in the Fellowship since its inception, guiding well more than 20,000 MC students and their families through various Smithsonian museums as part of the program.
