In spring 2019, Jonathan Holt received the Bass Digital Education Fellowship, an inaugural doctoral fellowship program at Duke sponsored by the Graduate School and Learning Innovation. He was one of 7 recipients of the year-long fellowship (to be completed 2019-2020). The Bass Digital Education Fellowship offers PhD students an opportunity to collaborate on leading-edge projects in partnership with Duke faculty and under the guidance of Learning Innovation, who supports faculty to advance teaching innovation, to explore new digital technologies for learning, and to develop new online education models and programs. The Bass Digital Education Fellowship Program is designed to help graduate students develop new skills to distinguish themselves in the academic job market and to explore emerging career paths in education technology, digital publishing, and teaching and learning innovation. Fellows will consult with Duke departments and/or individual faculty to uncover needs, research solutions, draft project proposals, and execute a digital project in support of undergraduate education. Jonathan has yet to be assigned to a specific project, but he hopes to use the fellowship to improve access to digital pedagogies in the fields of statistics and ecology.
