CTL Fellows Program in Teaching and
Friday, April 23, 2010 Deadline
The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce this
year’s call for applications for the CTL Fellows Program. The
2008-2010 Fellows are now completing their second year in the
program, and will be making presentations on Wednesday, April
21. 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. There
will also be guests invited to share their expertise in areas
relevant to the Fellows’ projects.
- Each Fellow will be funded up to $2,000 for materials to
enhance technological aspects of their course or to attend a
workshop or conference to develop their knowledge or skills related
to teaching with technology.
- Support from the Technology Learning Center 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
