7 FAST Fellowship Program Preliminary Trends, Impacts, Linkages Fellows appreciated the opportunity to discuss & apply topics associated with teaching, learning, and assessment with a diversity of faculty, staff and students Doing a teaching-as-research project Fellows-dilemma-would like to have more time to spend in the program/on projects; however, they have many commitments FAST affected students views about teaching assessment techniques and resources available Participation in Network courses, 2008 Forum, STEMES Fellows transitioning into faculty (& other positions in industry) roles, e.g., N.C.
