Sharone Named Lilly Fellow

Ofer Sharone | UMass Amherst Sociology

Ofer Sharone, Professor of Sociology, has been named a 2018-2019 Lilly Fellow for Teaching Excellence by the Institute for Teaching Excellence and Faculty Development (TEFD). The Lilly Fellowship is a competitive award program, established in 1986, that enables promising junior faculty to cultivate teaching excellence in a special yearlong collaboration.

The fellows attend bi-weekly seminars on teaching pedagogy, develop a new course or substantially redesign an existing one, assess their teaching and their students’ learning through classroom visits, work with mentors to anticipate many of the challenges and rewards of faculty life at UMass Amherst, and design a teaching-focused workshop or program to share the benefits of the Lilly Fellowship with colleagues at the department, school-college, or campus-wide level.
