The Instructional Technology Faculty Fellows Program is a new program for any member of the campus community whose continuing contract has a teaching component. The dates for the program are May 18-22, 2009. The goals of the program are to increase the number of faculty taking advantage of Web 2.0 and other technologies in their teaching and scholarship, to familiarize faculty with tools and project types with which Instructional Technology can help, and to help faculty learn how to assess technology projects. Participants will also be expected to develop a project to be implemented in one of their Fall courses and to participate in continuing dialog throughout the Fall Semester.
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 Fall of 2009. Upon completion of the week-long portion of the program participants will receive a certificate, designation as a Faculty Instructional Technology Fellow, and half of the $1500 stipend (deposited into a research account awarded to the participating faculty member). The second half of the $1500 stipend will be deposited to participants’ research accounts upon implementing a project in one of their Fall 2009 courses.
Applications for the Program will be accepted until midnight on May 5th. Applicants will be notified about the status of their application not later than 5 PM on May 6.
