The Hub for Innovation in Learning and Technology is pleased to have started the Hub Faculty Fellows Program in the summer of 2017. We anticipate that this program will run annually each year.
The purpose of the Hub Faculty Fellows program is to provide an opportunity for faculty to work on a project that will improve the student learning experience at MSU that the faculty member believes will benefit from working with the Hub for Innovation in Learning and Technology.
The Fellowship is designed to support the work of the Hub and of the associated faculty member (the Fellow). During the summer, the Fellow will be “in residence” at the Hub. Presence will facilitate the conversations that we believe are necessary to a successful experience. The Fellow’s project will be folded into the Hub’s workflow for the summer in order to facilitate conversation.
Proposals for Fellowships
Fellowships are awarded based on the quality and fit of the project proposal. Proposals for Fellowships will be sought starting in February of each year and will remain open until April 1. If you are interested in becoming a Hub Fellow, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inside Teaching MSU (ITMSU) is a network of graduate and postdoc students focused on promoting educator excellence through collaboration and assessment. In partnership with the Hub, ITMSU-HUB fellows will work on various projects throughout the university to learn more about higher education and its facilitation.
Each fellowship begins with learning about the kind of work done at the Hub; fellows become participant observers with faculty and academic staff, where they get the chance to fine-tune creative skill sets (i.e. branding, social media strategy, etc.) through disseminating information about these educational design projects. Later in the fellowship, fellows will develop their own research or assessment projects to demonstrate their learning, which will be shared publicly.
For a one-year fellowship, each fellow will receive $5,000, to be paid over two semesters.
