“The Carolina Community is full of opportunity in and out of the college classroom. Our Teaching Fellows Program is designed to prepare students to Propel the World through the gift of learning to ALL students they serve.”
Jennifer Diliberto, Program Director
The following four pillars guide the UNC Teaching Fellows community of learners:
Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Equity and Diversity
You will learn and reflect collaboratively through coursework, clinical experiences, experiential learning, community service, and professional development. The four pillars are interwoven throughout coursework, clinical experiences, enrichment activities, and other opportunities to emphasize critical themes essential to becoming a teacher and leader.
