The Paul C. Reinert, S.J. Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning is currently accepting applications for two fellowship opportunities for 2016-2017: the Reinert Center Fellowship and the Innovative Teaching Fellowship. Both are available to full-time, permanent teaching faculty at the University.
Reinert Center Fellows work on specific faculty development projects (that they propose); projects focus on a topic related to pedagogical strategies, course design, and/or research on teaching and learning. Proposed projects must enhance the fellows’ own learning and expertise on a teaching topic, result in a tangible development opportunity for other SLU faculty from a range of disciplines, and enhance/supplement existing Reinert Center programs and/or resources. Reinert Center Fellows receive a stipend of $1,000 (disbursed at $500 per semester) to support development and time. Proposals are due Feb. 15. More information, including sample projects, may be found here.
Innovative Teaching Fellows teach in SLU’s highly-flexible, technology-rich classroom, the Learning Studio. During this two-semester fellowship, faculty spend the first semester (re)designing a course to be taught in the Studio; in the second semester, they teach in the Studio. This competitive fellowship provides funding to cover a one-course reduction in teaching during the semester of preparation and ongoing instructional development support during the semester of teaching. The next fellowship period is for a course release in fall 2016 and teaching in spring 2017. Applications are due Feb. 22. Interested faculty must register for and attend a Pre-Application Information Session. More information may be found here.
