BLOOMINGTON, Ind.—Now in its third year, Indiana University’s Mosaic Active Learning Initiative bolsters innovative classroom design, research, and support for all IU classrooms. The goal, as always, is to enhance student learning.
The Mosaic Faculty Fellows program is a key component of the Mosaic Initiative. The program provides an opportunity across two semesters for faculty to explore and reflect on active learning approaches with other Mosaic Fellows, as well as to contribute to the development of learning spaces across Indiana University.
Earlier this month, IU announced the 2018-19 Mosaic Faculty Fellows for the Bloomington campus. They are:
- Ann Bunger, lecturer, Department of Linguistics
- William Emigh, lecturer, the Media School
- Kelly Hanson, lecturer, Kelley School of Business
- Minjeong Kim, associate professor, School of Art, Architecture + Design
- Margaret Lion, senior lecturer, School of Public Health
- Robin Reeves, senior lecturer, Department of Spanish and Portuguese
- Kan Shao, assistant professor, School of Public Health

The new Fellows began their tenure at the Mosaic Institute on May 9 in Bloomington and will finish at the end of the spring 2019 semester.
The Mosaic initiative now has 80 Fellows across all IU campuses. “With our Fellows researching and teaching active learning methodologies all across the state, Mosaic is fulfilling one of its fundamental goals: to transform the classroom experience for students and faculty,” said Stacy Morrone, IU associate vice president for learning technologies. “This network of faculty leaders—our Fellows—are leading the charge to create a better learning experience for all.”
“The Mosaic Faculty Fellows program offers IU faculty an unprecedented opportunity to network, reflect on our teaching, and improve active learning for our students,” said Kelly Hanson, a lecturer in the Kelley School of Business. “I applied to Mosaic to learn how to better use classroom space to teach writing, and I’m excited to study how active learning classrooms can promote an inclusive teaching practice. I hope to apply what I learn in my classes to improve team writing and to make my classroom more equitable and inclusive.”
