The Provost Teaching and Learning Fellows program was jointly established by the Provost and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) in Fall 2016. The aim of the program is to strengthen teaching and learning in the colleges through an embedded system of ongoing instructional support and special initiatives. Seventeen disciplinary faculty in the colleges were selected by their deans to partner with professionals in CTL, in order to promote environments where diverse learners can excel.
Provost Teaching and Learning Fellows serve a two year term and meet monthly throughout the academic year to engage in topics such as cultivating change in higher education and fostering an environment that rewards teaching and learning. In addition, Provost Teaching and Learning Fellows meet monthly with their college cohorts and a CTL teaching and learning specialist to develop and further college-specific initiatives, which are informed by discussions with key leaders in the colleges. All Provost Teaching and Learning Fellows receive an annual stipend and are expected to attend one teaching and learning conference during their two-year term.
Nominations and applications for the next cohort of Provost Teaching and Learning Fellows will be solicited during the Spring 2018 semester.
