Sofía Dueñas ’17, will be DigLibArts inaugural recipient of the Cauffman Fellowship. The Cauffman Fellowship has been generously endowed by Jan and John Cauffman to support faculty-student collaborations and innovative pedagogies. Sofía will be a junior in the Whittier Scholars Program, working with faculty mentor Dr. Anne Cong-Huyen.

Sofía and Anne will be collaborating to convert a semester-length seminar into a 3-week intensive course. Sofía will work with Anne to investigate different digital tools and to design higher-ed assignments that can be incorporated into this class and to others. Sofía will gain an understanding of ed-tech in higher education contexts, and larger questions of pedagogy, assessment, and access. DigLibArts will also nominate Sofía as Whittier College’s first HASTAC scholar.
