Huckabay Teaching Fellowship
These one-quarter awards are intended to give graduate students an opportunity to develop a specific project focused on teaching and learning at the college and university level (students may not use the fellowship to teach a course they have already developed). Projects are proposed by students, who find faculty teaching mentors, either from UW or from a nearby community college, college, or university to collaborate with them in their projects. Projects are not resticted to developing a course; previous projects have used technology, onsite teaching, etc. During the project, collaborations between the fellow and the mentor should allow the student to benefit from the faculty member’s expertise in teaching, while maintaining a focuse centered on the student’s teaching interests.
