Biostatistics and Epidemiology faculty members Raji Balasubramanian and Carol Bigelow are among the inaugural group of FlexLearning Fellows (FLF) selected by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) and the Instructional Design Engagement and Support group (IDEAS).

Funded through the Chancellor’s Office, the FLF program provides departments with a faculty-led opportunity to identify a path to flexible learning that reflects their unique contexts including their disciplinary focus, degree programs and students; and provides the participating faculty leaders with a faculty-centered learning community in which they can further their knowledge and skills of flexible pedagogy and, in turn, serve as leaders and models in their department and the university.

Balasubramanian and Bigelow are supporting the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology’s goal to offer their existing master of science degree in biostatistics as a flexible learning program that could be completed fully by non-residential students.
