News: Two Faculty Fellow positions for 2018-2019

 

The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce a call for applications for two Faculty Fellow positions
for the 2018 – 2019 academic year.

 

The Creative Thinking Faculty Fellow will be expected to design and pursue a year long project intended to advance our
understanding and use of pedagogies that enhance students’ creative thinking abilities.

 

The Diversity and Inclusion Faculty Fellow will be expected to design and pursue a year long project intended to advance our understanding and use of pedagogies for a diverse student body. This fellowship is generously supported by the Mellon Foundation.

 

These fellowships are an opportunity to explore questions of interest or to learn more about creative or inclusive teaching. One does not need to already be an expert in these pedagogies to apply.

 

Working in collaboration with the Center for Teaching and Learning and, when appropriate, the Diversity Office, fellows will facilitate campus discussion related to their project topics throughout the year. Furthermore, it is expected that the fellows will disseminate the results of their projects regionally and nationally through presentations and publications.

 

Each Faculty Fellow will receive one course release for each of the Fall and Spring terms (2 courses or 6 credit hours total). In addition, a total of $4,000 will be made available to support the activities of each fellow.

 

All full-time faculty who have earned tenure and have demonstrated a commitment to student learning are encouraged to apply.

 

Application materials, which include a project proposal and a letter of support from your division chair, are due
to Sarah Lashley (sarah.lashley@centre.edu) by Friday, January 5.

 

More information about the fellowships and application process available here.
