2018 Educational Technology Faculty Fellows

2017 Faculty Fellows in action

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 21st- May 25th (5:30-7:30 PM on Monday the 21st, 1-4 PM on Tuesday the 22nd, and 9-4 Wednesday-Friday with lunch from noon-1 on your own). 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 2018-2019 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 7th.  Applicants will be notified about the status of their application on a rolling basis but not later than 5 PM on May 7th. You can complete an application here.


TBD. Time will be designated for participating faculty to work on personal technology projects. Please keep an eye out here for a more detailed curriculum.
