Nov. 17 is nomination deadline for Wisconsin Teaching Scholars and Fellows Program

Time is short to nominate a faculty member for two very prestigious programs:
the 2007-08 Wisconsin Teaching Scholars and the Wisconsin Teaching Fellows
. Deadline for nomination material: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2006.

The Wisconsin Teaching SCHOLARS Program is designed for mid- to late-career
faculty who have had experience in examining teaching and learning issues.
Applicants must have knowledge of and interest in the Scholarship of
Teaching and Learning, demonstrated success in implementing and
disseminating teaching and learning innovations, and a record of campus
leadership on issues of teaching and learning.

The Wisconsin Teaching FELLOWS Program is designed for outstanding
early-career, untenured faculty who show exceptional promise as college
teachers. Applicants must have at least one year of college teaching
experience at their current campus.

The Provost’s Office will provide each Scholar and Fellow with $4,000
stipend to be paid within a month of Summer Institute. Travel expenses for
Scholars and Fellows to attend the four OPID-sponsored events that are a
required part of these programs will also be covered by the Provost’s
Office. The UW System Office of Professional and Instructional Development
(OPID) will provide each fellow and scholar with $500 S&E.
