CFDE Staff Accomplishments

Congratulations to Donna Troka, CFDE Senior Associate Director, for recently being named one of a dozen recipients of Emory's Award of Distinction. Since 1985, the award has annually recognized staff members who have made outstanding contributions to the Emory community. 

Donna has personally worked with several hundred faculty over the past decade in one-on-one teaching consultations. She has developed workshops on pedagogy reaching many faculty and graduate students. This summer, she led a workshop on inclusive pedagogy, a subject on which she is one of Emory’s top experts. She helped develop several CFDE grants related to teaching activities, and often works with faculty to hone their ideas for these grants. She also organizes many other CFDE activities related to teaching. Her creativity and enthusiasm are crucial to the success of these activities.

Congratulations also to Vialla Hartfield-Mendez, CFDE Director of Engaged Learning, who was featured on the "Engaged UVA" website at her alma mater, the University of Virginia. Vialla recently was also invited to present at UVA on her work in engaged learning at Emory.
