Faculty Fellows Program

The Faculty Fellows Program is designed to give our faculty leadership experience in a professional development area (e.g., Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), teaching online, leveraging the makerspace, inclusive pedagogy, community engagement, high-impact practices) as they work as CTE staff to prepare programming and deliverables in their area of expertise that will enhance pedagogy across the university.  

Call for Applications: CTE Faculty Fellows

The University of New Haven Center for Teaching Excellence is pleased to issue a call for applications for three Faculty Fellows. These appointments will most likely begin in January 2021, but may begin in summer or fall of 2021. 

Mission of Center 

The mission of the University of New Haven Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) is to   

  • offer programs and services that support faculty in facilitating active, student-centered courses and that encourage the growth of high-impact, innovative teaching practices;  

  • support faculty and programs in evaluating the effectiveness of their curricula and teaching;   

  • foster a culture of inclusive, reflective teaching through peer support and community building around teaching;  

  • promote faculty participation in scholarship on teaching and learning.  

These efforts are ultimately supporting the larger goal of student success. 

Faculty Fellows Program 

The Faculty Fellows Program is designed to give our full-time faculty leadership experience in a professional development area (e.g., Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), teaching online, leveraging the makerspace, inclusive pedagogy, community engagement, high-impact practices) as they work to prepare programming and deliverables in their area of expertise that will enhance pedagogy across the university.  

All faculty fellows will create 1-2 CTE-sponsored workshops per year, along with a deliverable/project such as a white paper, online module, recommendation report, campus initiative or event, a SoTL publication, or Open Educational Resource (OER). 

Fellows will also participate in the Center’s regular services, such as providing confidential, non-evaluative teaching observations, individual teaching consultations, early semester focus groups, participating in New Faculty Orientation, and so forth. (Prior experience in writing teaching observations and consultations is a plus but not expected. Training will be provided.)

 

Faculty fellows should expect to allot 8-10 hours of their time to the Center each week. Fellows will also be expected to participate in CTE advisory board meetings.

 

Faculty fellows will receive a $2,000 Faculty Fellows Stipend Award and a 3-credit course release per semester. They will commit to a one-year term, with the option to renew for a second year.  

 

Applications for 2021 were due November 30th. Check this page soon to learn about accepted Fellows!
