UNG faculty selected as Governor’s Teaching Fellows

UNG professors were selected to participate in the statewide Governor's Teaching Fellows Program for higher ed faculty members.

University of North Georgia (UNG) faculty members Drs. Michallene McDaniel, associate professor of sociology and human services, and Ken Martin, associate professor of Spanish, were named as Governor’s Teaching Fellows for the 2016-17 year.

The Governor's Teaching Fellows Program provides Georgia's higher education faculty members with expanded opportunities for developing important teaching skills through the use of technology and various other means meant to challenge both faculty and students.

As part of the total of 12 participants, two nominations from each public or private university in Georgia are accepted to the program for the length of an academic year.  The selection is based on several criteria including teaching experience, teaching philosophy, and the individual’s proposed project.

McDaniel holds an associate degree in communications from Florida State University, a bachelor's in sociology from the University of North Florida, a master's in sociology, a graduate certificate in women's studies, and a Ph. D. in sociology from the University of Georgia. She teaches on the Gainesville Campus, and her current research projects include a collaboration with colleagues in the psychological sciences that examines the relationship between personality and religiosity, and an independent exploration of the role of LGBT subtext in popular culture in the identity construction of audience members.

Martin completed his masters in Spanish and Ph.D. in romance languages at the University of Georgia. He specializes in the evolution of human consciousness and how it manifests in contemporary Latin American literature. He began teaching Spanish on the UNG Oconee Campus in 2015.
