SPIRE Scholars Develop and Teach Courses at Partner Institutions
As part of the SPIRE fellowship, scholars develop and teach undergraduate courses at one of SPIRE's partner institutions in North Carolina. Scholars design courses that integrate active learning strategies, research-based content, and new topics in their field. There are three scholars who are currently teaching and mentoring undergraduates during the Spring 2015 semester:
