CTRL Faculty Fellows Program:

Call for Applications

The Faculty Fellows program is designed to advance CTRL’s mission of promoting and supporting excellence in teaching and research at American University. In doing so, the program recognizes and leverages faculty expertise to lead in the sharing of knowledge, experience, and creativity.

This year, we are announcing two new categories of Faculty Fellows: Inclusive Pedagogy (IP) and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Faculty Fellows. Below are details for each of the categories and a link to apply. Review of applications, for all Faculty Fellows Programs, will start August 1, 2019.

Teaching & Scholarship (TS) Faculty Fellows

We invite applications to the Teaching & Scholarship Faculty Fellows Program for AY19-20. The program is open to all faculty and comes with a $4,000 stipend and support from CTRL.

Fellows are expected to work closely with CTRL staff to develop and implement activities over the course of the year. Activities could include, for example, workshops on innovations in pedagogy or research methods, noontime conversations on team-teaching or collaborative projects, panel discussions on mentoring, and leading Faculty Learning Communities. Additional responsibilities include serving as a member of the Ann Ferren Conference program planning committee and an informal advisory group to the Executive Director of CTRL. Although much of the work related to this position will occur during the fall and spring semesters, Fellows should expect some work to occur during the summer.

Applicants will be asked to submit a 200-word statement describing their areas of interests in faculty development and types of activities that they would like to pursue as a Faculty Fellow.

Inclusive Pedagogy (IP) Faculty Fellows

We invite applications to the Inclusive Pedagogy Faculty Fellows Program for AY19-21. This position is open to all full-time faculty. Please note that this is a two-year commitment. Although much of the work related to this position will occur during the fall and spring semesters, Fellows should expect some limited amount to occur during the summer. The position comes with a stipend of $4,000 per year, programming funds, professional development opportunities, and support from CTRL.

The goal of the Inclusive Pedagogy (IP) Fellows Program is to support faculty in creating and sustaining a more inclusive classroom. As an IP Fellow, you will be expected to serve as a resource for faculty colleagues from across the campus who need support in their classrooms on issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. In addition to consulting with individual faculty, the IP Fellow will work closely with CTRL to develop and implement faculty development programming (e.g., faculty learning communities, workshops, events). Additional responsibilities include serving as a member of the Ann Ferren Conference organizing committee and an informal advisory group to the Executive Director of CTRL. Although much of the work related to this position will occur during the fall and spring semesters, Fellows should expect some work to occur during the summer.

Applicants will be asked to submit a 500-word statement describing their experience and interest in inclusive pedagogy, citing examples and activities that they would like to pursue as an IP Faculty Fellow.

Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL) Faculty Fellows (Term Faculty Only)

We invite applications for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Faculty Fellows Program for AY19-21. Please note that this is a two-year commitment. This program is open only to Term Faculty who have been in a full-time appointment (in either single- or multi-year contracts) at AU for three or more consecutive years. We encourage faculty from all disciplines, who are interested in studying factors that impact student learning to apply. The SoTL Fellow position comes with a total stipend package of $4,000 per year for two years and up to $2,000 for research materials or faculty development use.

In developing their research project, the SoTL Faculty Fellow will work closely with the CTRL Pedagogy Research Team which includes a recent senior faculty hire, a post-doctoral fellow, and CTRL staff. The Fellow is expected to develop a research plan during the fall semester, implement a pilot study in the spring, and spend part of the summer analyzing and refining their work. Additional responsibilities include serving as a member of the Ann Ferren Conference program planning committee and an informal advisory group to the Executive Director of CTRL. Although much of the work related to this position will occur during the fall and spring semesters, Fellows should expect some work to occur during the summer.

Additional information about the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning can be found at the CTRL SoTL Resources page.

Applicants will be asked to submit a 500-word statement describing their experience and interest in SoTL, and the general question they are interested in pursuing as a SoTL Faculty Fellow.
