Summer Faculty Technology Fellowships ($3500) are available on a competitive basis to support tenured or tenure-track full-time faculty in incorporating the use of new technologies in teaching or research. These projects would have the potential to provide models for effective use of technology in pioneering new pedagogy, new scholarship, or even shifting teaching and scholarship paradigms within the institution. Fellows are expected to work on a technology-based project related to their teaching and/or research. These projects may involve development of a course, course materials, manuscripts and/or development of new technology skills. Fellows may not teach during any summer session.
During the subsequent Fall semester, recipients are expected to implement these technologies and to support university-wide faculty development by assisting their colleagues in adopting or gaining proficiency with these technologies by means of consultation and workshops. Fellows are also expected to present the results of their work via lunch presentations, Celebration of Scholarship panels, newsletter articles, or other institutional venues.
Candidates for the fellowship must have a proven track record of technology use in their teaching and/or research agenda.
Recipients are required to submit a written report on the results of the fellowship to the Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning by October 1 following the award period.
