Are you interested in learning more about innovative, evidence-based teaching practices? Would you like to engage with colleagues from disciplines other than your own? Are you a veteran educator who would like to bolster your practice with some of the latest principles and strategies? If so, consider participating in the spring 2019 University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE) Learning Fellows 2.0 program.
The Learning Fellows 2.0 program brings together faculty who share an interest in exploring the art and science of how people learn. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect upon and further develop their teaching practice as part of an interdisciplinary learning community. The semester-long seminar will meet once a week to discuss readings that focus on innovative pedagogy and share ideas as to how student learning can be improved.
Meetings will take place on Wednesdays from 12:45 to 2 p.m. in the Herrick Room of Allen Memorial Library Building (at the corner of Euclid and Adelbert). Participants will meet weekly from Jan. 16 to April 24, with the exception of Feb. 27 and March 13.
Lunch will be provided at each session.
Applicants must be current faculty members at CWRU who are contracted to stay at CWRU at least through the 2019-20 academic year. Applicants must also be able to commit to attending all of the weekly sessions.
Applications for the spring 2019 Learning Fellows 2.0 program are due Monday, Jan. 7.
Participants who successfully complete a Learning Fellowship will receive a $2,500 grant.
