Ashland University announced that it has awarded six adjunct faculty members with professional fellow designations and three-year terms within the Schar College of Education.
To be considered as fellows, a faculty member is required to have a nomination by a field director or a department chair. Nominations are then evaluated by faculty of the education college and a vote is taken to determine the winners.
The candidates are evaluated on their respective skills in instruction, how long they have been in this role, ability to form collaborative relationships with pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade partners. Student evaluations are also taken into consideration.
Four of the six fellows work with the university’s internship and student teaching programs as supervisors with school districts in Florida and South Carolina. Those supervisors are Janice Welch, Cydelle Quinn, Sherrolyn Knowles and Tess Neumann.
Jennifer Groman serves as an adjunct professor with Ashland University and with Missouri State University. Pam Danklefsen works as a speech and language pathologist for local schools in Columbus and teaches courses at the Columbus Center at Ashland University.
Ashland University is a private university that is located in Ohio and the announcement states that its smaller size allows greater amounts of student and instructor interactions.
