Early-career faculty: Call for applications to MTLE Faculty Fellowship

Early-career faculty teaching undergraduate courses are invited to apply for the next Madison Teaching and Leaning Excellence Faculty Fellowship, beginning in Fall 2016.

The goal is to support fast, effective, and efficient starters in teaching and tenure at UW-Madison. Over the course of a year, each cohort of MTLE Faculty Fellows engages in a modular curriculum designed to quickly connect Fellows with the many specialized programs across campus focused on teaching excellence, to facilitate innovation in their classes with learner-centered practices proven to enhance learning, and to foster a cross-campus community of practice shown to live well beyond Fellows’ time in MTLE. Through this program, Fellows report greater satisfaction and impact with their teaching, resulting in an efficiency that affords them more time for research, outreach, and service. In addition, Fellows gather evidence about teaching success to use in their tenure dossiers.

Start date: The Faculty Institute on Teaching will take place on August 31 (full day) & September 1 (half day), 2016. We also meet weekly for 60-90 minutes during the academic year.

Online applications are due May 15, 2016.
