Call for Applications: UWGB Teaching Scholars (2013-14)
The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) is pleased to offer you an opportunity to share your teaching expertise and further develop your craft. Please consider applying to be a UWGB Teaching Scholar for the 2013-2014 academic year. Being a Teaching Scholar is both an honor — a recognition of excellent teaching — and a means of professional development.
Co-directed by David Voelker (Humanistic Studies/History) and Ryan Martin (Human Development/Psychology), the program offers opportunities to discuss teaching with colleagues, develop new teaching strategies, read materials about teaching and learning, and assess a learning goal through a scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) project.
Up to seven faculty members and instructors will be selected, and each will receive a $1,000.00 stipend. Preference will be given to applicants who plan to design their SoTL project in the Fall, for implementation in the Spring 2014 semester. To apply for this professional development opportunity, please submit the following in an email message (with attachments) to David, Ryan, and CATL Director, Jennifer Lanter (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org):
• A two to three page letter of interest detailing your teaching philosophy, teaching accomplishments, and a rough description of a teaching or learning challenge or problem you propose to address with a SoTL project. (Please also state your commitment to attend at least 6 of the 7 scheduled meetings.)
• A brief CV (approximately 2-3 pages, with an emphasis on teaching and any SoTL experience)
• A letter of support from your unit chair (approximately one page)
