About the Institute

“This was an incredible experience”
 AJ Boydston, Chemistry, Invited TTFI participant Aug. 2013

The Office of the Provost in cooperation with the Center for Teaching and Learning and UW-IT is pleased to offer a week-long institute for faculty members who want to redesign a traditional course into a hybrid, blended, or online format.  Faculty participants receive monetary compensation and ongoing assistance.

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.

Dates and details

  • August 22-25, 2016

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 12 or 13, 2016

Participants present their transformed courses in a “critical friends” setting, with evaluation and feedback from peers.

  • September 2016 – December 2017

Participants teach the redesigned courses during the 2016-2017 academic year, the Summer 2017 academic quarter, or the Autumn 2017 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: August 22-25 and December 12 or 13.

Each faculty member on a course team receives $1000K for participating in the two parts of the Tech Teaching Fellows Institute, same dates.

Application procedure

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).

Applications include:

  1. Brief letter of support from a department chair, director, or dean
  2. 1/2 to 2 page proposal
  3. Current course syllabus

The deadline for all three elements of the application:  June 17, 2016, 5:00 p.m. Learn more here.
