Fellowship in Teaching Innovation
Call for 2014 Applications
The purpose of the $10,000 Fellowship in Teaching Innovation award is to encourage main campus faculty members (full-time and part-time) to pursue teaching innovations at Western University. The Fellowship exists primarily, but not exclusively, to support undergraduate and professional school teaching at the University, matching Western’s commitment to the highest standards and quality of undergraduate education.
Teaching innovation projects may take many forms, such as developing new strategies for student engagement or initiatives involving the novel incorporation of educational technology into classroom settings. The award may be used to develop teaching innovation projects through the purchase of release-time, support for graduate students, acquisition of technology, or to attend teaching conferences.
The deadline for receipt of applications is March 3, 2014. Application procedures can be found at: http://www.uwo.ca/tsc/awards_and_grants/western_funding_initiatives/fellowship.html
An information session will be held on Thursday, February 6 at 11:30 a.m. in Room 121, Weldon Library. This session is intended for those preparing applications in the current cycle.
For more information about the Fellowship, please contact Dr. Debra Dawson, Director of the Teaching Support Centre, by phone at ext. 84621 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
