Learning Design Fellowship
In Summer 2024, LATS Learning Design will once again offer three design fellowships to encourage the creation of quality online courses in collaboration with a Learning Experience Designer for use in Baylor graduate and undergraduate curricula.
Fellowships are available for full-time Baylor faculty members (which can include tenured and tenure-track faculty, regular lecturers, and senior lecturers). The fellowships occur during summer and you will be designing an online course for the following fall or spring/summer.
Recipients of this teaching fellowship will receive a stipend of $1,250 (pretax) and will spend at minimum of 20 hours working with a Learning Experience Designer in-person or virtually who can provide guidance on designing an online course, structuring content, choosing learning assessments, building interactivity, and implementing best practices. Learning Design Fellows will also be asked to meet three times as a group with representatives of the University Libraries and the LATS Learning Design Team.
Additionally, fellows will be expected to share their experience with other faculty and graduate students by presenting on their course and the instructional design process in either a LATS-offered seminar, one of the Academy for Teaching and Learning’s Seminars for Excellence in Teaching (SET), or another appropriate venue. The fellows' courses will also be showcased as a "model" to be shared with other faculty as needed.
To apply, candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief statement (1-2 pages) describing their proposed course, goals and rationale for applying for the fellowship, and a previous sample syllabus.
Application deadlines for the Summer 2024 fellowships will be set at a later time.
For additional information, and to submit your application, contact Chris Zakrzewski.
