Dr. Daniel Smalley received the Edwin Cozzens Teaching and Learning Faculty Fellowship at this year’s University Conference.
The university awarded six teaching and learning faculty fellowships this year, which recognized “the sacrifice and efforts by the university’s support services in providing a transfer of positions and budget to enhance teaching and learning,” according to the conference program.
The program noted that Smalley’s current research focuses on holography and volumetric 3D displays, that his work has appeared in both academic and lay venues, and that he actively options and licenses more than a dozen patents. It also praised his creative approaches to teaching, which engage his students and help them master complex material.
Like the rest of the university awards, each fellowship was named for a different man with ties to BYU. Edwin Cozzens, the man for whom Smalley’s fellowship was named, formerly served as physical facilities director.
