The Architecture Program is proud to announce that Assistant Professors Deborah Oakley and Michael A. Ambrose have been awarded the prestigious University of Maryland CTE-Lilly Fellowship for the 2008-2009 academic year. Under the auspices of the Center for Teaching Excellence and the Office of Undergraduate Studies, they will join with eight other faculty cohorts from across the campus in weekly discussions on a joint University-wide project.
In this program, each individual Fellow also receives a stipend to support independent research. Assistant Professor Oakley will be looking at enhancements to structural technology classes through the integration of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, and Assistant Professor Ambrose will be creating a new design studio/seminar study abroad experience in architecture to target developing countries.
We are especially pleased that two of this year's ten competitive University of Maryland fellowships were bestowed upon professors in the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.
