CTL Fellows Programs
The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce this
year’s call for applications for the CTL Fellows Program. The
2011-2013 Fellows are now completing their second year in the
program, and will be making presentations on Thursday, April
18, 2013 from 1:50 pm to 3:15 pm in Bent Hall 277A. 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,
one-page 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
- 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 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
