About the Institute
“This was an incredible experience”
AJ Boydston, Chemistry, Invited TTFI participant Aug. 2013
The Center for Teaching and Learning and UW-IT are pleased to offer a week-long institute for faculty members who want to redesign a traditional course into a hybrid or online format. Faculty participants receive monetary compensation and ongoing assistance.
Permanent, active, full-time UW Seattle faculty members are welcome to apply, either as individuals or as a team. Eligible full-time faculty members include lecturers of all ranks, as well as tenure-line and tenured instructors. Visiting faculty are not eligible.
Dates and details
July 10-14, 2017
Participants spend a week working with colleagues, facilitators, and coaches to redesign their traditional course into a hybrid or online format. The Institute includes evidence-based workshops on pedagogy and technology, collaborative work sessions, “sandbox” activities in a technology-enhanced classroom, and solo preparation. Learning technologists from UW-IT and instructional consultants from the Center for Teaching and Learning are available throughout the week to provide training and support.
December 11, 2017
Participants present their transformed courses in a “critical friends” setting, with evaluation and feedback from peers.
2017-2018: Summer 2018 & Autumn 2018
Participants teach their redesigned courses during the 2017-2018 academic year, the Summer 2018 academic quarter, or the Autumn 2018 academic quarter. Throughout this period, UW-IT & CTL provide TTF fellows with technology and teaching support.
Individual faculty members receive $2000 each for participating in the two parts of the Technology Teaching Fellows Institute: July 10-14, 2017, and December 11, 2017.
Faculty members on a course team divide the $2000 compensation between or among team members. Team members participate in both parts of the Technology Teaching Fellows Institute: July 10-14, 2017, and December 11, 2017.
Full-time UW Seattle faculty members may apply as individuals or as teams. We seek instructors who are committed to truly transforming their courses — both in format and design. We are especially interested in course transformations that will have broad impacts for undergraduate students (for example, by increasing access to gateway courses).
