The Paul C. Reinert, S.J., Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning invites applications from permanent, full-time teaching faculty for the Innovative Teaching Fellowship, which prepares and supports faculty for teaching in Saint Louis University’s Learning Studio, a highly-flexible, technology-rich experimental classroom.
This competitive, two-semester fellowship provides either a $3200.00 stipend or funding to cover a 1-course reduction in teaching in order to support course (re)design and instructional development activities during the semester prior to teaching in the Learning Studio, and classroom and ongoing instructional development support during the semester of teaching in the Learning Studio. The course development phase of the fellowship (semester one) includes participating in weekly meetings with a Reinert Center Instructional Developer; creating and/or revising course documents; and submitting a mid-term and end-of-term report on progress. The teaching phase of the fellowship (semester two) includes teaching the course in the Learning Studio, continued contact with the Reinert Center Instructional Developer, and sharing one’s fellowship experience with the larger SLU community.
The current call for applications is for the following fellowship period:
Course Development (semester 1): Fall 2018
Course Teaching (semester 2): Spring 2019
Faculty who wish to apply must complete all stages of the application process as described below, including: 1) attend a Pre-Application Information Session; 2) secure approval from both their department chair/program director and dean; and 3) submit a complete application no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 23, 2018.
