2016 Educational Technology Faculty Fellows

The Educational Technology Faculty Fellows Program is a unique experience for any member of the campus community whose continuing contract has a teaching component. The dates for this year’s program are May 23rd- May 27th (5:30-7:30 PM on the 23rd, 1-4 PM on the 24th, and 9-4 on the remaining days with lunch from noon-1). The goals of the program are to increase the number of faculty taking advantage of technologies in their teaching and scholarship, to familiarize faculty with tools and project types with which Educational Technology can help, and to help faculty learn how to assess technology projects. Participants will be expected to develop course units to be implemented in one of their courses or explore ways to incorporate technology into their research, and to participate in continuing dialog throughout the year and share their work with their colleagues in a faculty development event, such as Teaching Matters, Research Matters, or a brown-bag session.

The Program seeks to select a diverse group from all level of teaching experience, technology use, and project implementation and across all disciplines. Successful applicants will be expected to attend all sessions, must be willing to communicate to their department and campus the projects and tools with which they are working, and must be teaching a course in the 2016-2017 academic year. Upon completion of the week-long portion of the program participants will receive a certificate, designation as an Educational Technology Faculty Fellow, and have access to a personal $1000 technology project fund.

Applications for the Program will be accepted on a rolling basis until 10 fellows are selected or until 9:00 AM on May 9th.  Applicants will be notified about the status of their application on a rolling basis but not later than 5 PM on May 9th. You can complete an application here.


This year the new emerging technology discussions and learning opportunities will focus on introducing 3D modeling/printing into the Liberal Arts classroom (why and how),Digital Studies/Humanities/Scholarship/Liberal Arts (what does it mean and how to incorporate DS/H/S/LA activities into your course), and ways to leverage existing campus technologies (Moodle, Voices, iPads, etc) to help your students meet your courses’ learning goals. We plan on having faculty do a hands-on 3D printing project as part of their activities for the week. Time will be designated for participating faculty to work on personal technology projects. Please keep an eye out here for a more detailed curriculum.

Our session on the 23rd will be a dinner from 5:30-7:30 PM. Below is a rough schedule.
