The goal of the Faculty Fellows Program is to advance Center for Teaching, Research, and Learning’s mission of promoting and supporting excellence in teaching and scholarship. The Program leverages faculty expertise to lead in the sharing of knowledge, experience, and creativity with their colleagues. Faculty Fellows work with CTRL to develop and implement programming to enhance faculty’s effectiveness as teachers and researchers.
The term of a Faculty Fellow is one academic year. If you have any questions about the program or are interested in serving as CTRL Faculty Fellow, please contact Kiho Kim.
The Inclusive Pedagogy Fellow Program for AY20-22 is open to all full-time faculty. Please note that this is a two–year commitment. Although much of the work related to this position will occur during the fall and spring semesters, Fellows should expect some limited amount to occur during the summer. The position comes with a stipend of $4,000 per year, programming funds, professional development opportunities, and support from CTRL.
The goal of the Inclusive Pedagogy (IP) Fellows Program is to support faculty in creating and sustaining a more inclusive classroom. As an IP Fellow, you will be expected to serve as a resource for faculty colleagues from across the campus who need support in their classrooms on issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. In addition to consulting with individual faculty, the IP Fellow will work closely with CTRL to develop and implement faculty development programming (e.g., faculty learning communities, workshops, events). Additional responsibilities include serving as a member of the Ann Ferren Conference organizing committee and an informal advisory group to the Executive Director of CTRL. Although much of the work related to this position will occur during the fall and spring semesters, Fellows should expect some work to occur during the summer.
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Faculty Fellow Program for AY20-22 is open only to Term Faculty who have been in a full-time appointment (in either single- or multi-year contracts) at AU for three or more consecutive years. We encourage faculty applicants from all disciplines, who are interested in studying factors that impact student learning, to apply. We especially encourage application from those interested in pedagogy related to writing instruction and work with student writing in an online environment, and in different digital modalities (e.g., interactive/peer feedback, instruction in writing strategies or conventions using different modalities, teacher-guided practice via Zoom or an LMS, student multimodal writing).
The SoTL Fellow position comes with a total stipend package of $4,000 per year for two years and up to $2,000 for research materials or faculty development use. This program is supported in part by the Milton and Sonia Greenberg Fund.
In developing their research project, the SoTL Faculty Fellow will work closely with the CTRL Pedagogy Research Team and other relevant campus partners. The Fellow is expected to develop a research plan during the fall semester, implement a pilot study in the spring, and spend part of the summer analyzing and refining their work. Additional responsibilities include serving as a member of the Ann Ferren Conference organizing committee and an informal advisory group to the Executive Director of CTRL. Although much of the work related to this position will occur during the fall and spring semesters, Fellows should expect some work to occur during the summer.
