The Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL) invites faculty to submit a proposal semi-annually to partner with CITL on advancing their course pedagogy.
Senior CITL Faculty Fellowships
Senior CITL Faculty Fellowships are currently offered to accepted proposals in the following areas that require a substantial investment of time (e.g., a significant course redesign, integration of an innovative project into the course, adoption of a wholly new teaching approach, etc.) :
- Inquiry-based Learning
Fellows will receive support developing inquiry-based approaches, questions, and projects that spark curiosity, motivate learning, reward effective communication, and support guided reflection.
- Generative Artificial Intelligence in the Classroom
Fellows will receive support identifying and selecting instructional approaches and assessments that help their students build the critical thinking skills and information/data/media literacy competencies related to the arrival of this technology into educational and working environments.
- Cross-Disciplinary Course Moments
Fellows will partner with a Lehigh faculty colleague to plan and implement cross-disciplinary moments in an existing course. (Note: as this fellowship is partly funded by grant dollars from the Mellon “Humanities Lab” initiative, priority will be given to initiatives that connect humanities faculty with faculty outside the humanities).
- Integrating XR/VR technologies in your Courses
Fellows will receive support in teaching, demonstrating, and exposing students to content through the use of specialized platforms such as 3D model labs, virtual classrooms/meeting spaces, VR simulations, design and drafting tools, as well as other immersive experiential learning resources.
- Teaching in an LTS Flexible Learning space
Fellows will receive support in creating active learning environments that foster collaborative student work and problem-based or inquiry-based learning–and will have priority scheduling in LTS Flexible Learning Spaces, which offer moveable furniture, annotatable and shared writing surfaces, HyFlex 2 conferencing technology, with in-room ‘huddle monitors.’
Senior CITL Faculty Fellows are eligible for a grant of up to $2,000 and to have CITL and LTS staff collaborate with them on developing instructional approaches, course activities, assignments, and assessments and conducting informal educational research related to their classroom outcomes. As a grant recipient, fellows present at the annual Symposium on Teaching and Learning (or other CITL event) and facilitate discussions on the theme of their collaboration with CITL-sponsored Community of Practice members.
