Teaching & Technology Fellows

The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce this year’s call for applications for the CTL Fellows Program. The 2012-2014 Fellows completed their second year in the program, and will present their projects on Thursday, April 24, 2014. They have done impressive work integrating technological learning tools into their teaching. You are invited to apply to join this endeavor which provides encouragement and support for those interested in exploring how to enrich their teaching as well as their students' learning through technology.

  • This program is structured as a faculty learning community with the focus on assisting faculty in developing the technological aspects of their courses. This program is not targeting those who are technologically savvy nor those at the opposite end of the spectrum, rather the focus is on taking faculty the next step, no matter where their starting point.
     
  •  Fellows serve for two years. The first few months are used to develop their projects.
     
  • There are usually ten Fellows, drawn from full-time faculty throughout the University.
     
  • There is a simple, online application form outlining the course and the technological aspects the applicant would like to enhance.
     
  • The program begins with a one-day retreat in early Fall at which the Fellows develop their plans and discuss how best to structure the program.
     
  • Fellows are obligated to meet formally at least once a month to explore relevant literature, to discuss plans, to deal with concerns, and to report on the status of their projects.  The CTL takes this time commitment seriously and suggests that you not apply if you have significant time constraints.
     
  • Each Fellow will be funded up to $2,000 for support (excluding hardware) to enhance technological aspects of their course or for attendance at a workshop or conference to develop their knowledge or skills related to teaching with technology.
     
  • Support from the e-Studio and the University Libraries is an essential part of this program. The support is primarily in the form of expertise which the faculty can draw upon to achieve their goals. Specific individuals will be identified as liaisons with the Fellows Program.
     
  • Fellows are expected to make presentations and other forms of “publication” so that their efforts are communicated to other members of the faculty, particularly to members of their home departments or divisions. One of the best means to communicate with the larger higher education community would be through electronic course portfolios.
     
  • Deadline to apply is Monday, April 28, 2014.
