Teaching and Career Development Fellowships

Call for Applications Teaching and Career Development Fellowships,2015-2016

Applications are invited from doctoral students who are passionate about teaching innovation and new pedagogies, for the Teaching and Career Development Fellowship tenable in the First-Year Seminar Program. The Fellowship provides doctoral students with the opportunity to design and deliver a First-Year Seminar as the instructor of record. Applications from two collaborators are also encouraged, particularly when the team crosses the boundaries of departments and disciplines. Team teaching is expected to be synchronous and not sequential.

The First-Year Seminar Program provides undergraduate students in their first year of study with small courses centred on active learning and student engagement. Seminars emphasize oral presentation, writing, and research methodologies in the context of interdisciplinary, active and experiential learning. Seminars are thematically-focused on ideas and questions of contemporary interest and provide intriguing and inter/multidisciplinary approaches. Seminars that emphasize enquiry-based or experiential learning are preferred. For additional information about the First-Year Seminar Program, see the website: http://www.uoguelph.ca/fys

Students currently registered in any doctoral program at the University of Guelph.
