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 is please to offer a week-long institute for faculty who want to redesign a traditional course into a hybrid, blended, or online format.  Thanks to generous private support faculty will receive monetary compensation and ongoing assistance.

Full-time faculty and lecturers, as individuals or teams, from the Seattle campus are eligible and welcome to apply.

Part 1 – (Institute)

Participants spend a week working with colleagues, facilitators, and coaches to redesign their traditional course into a hybrid or online format.  The institute includes workshops (on pedagogy and technology), collaborative work sessions, “sandbox” activities in a technology-enhanced classroom, and solo preparation. Staff consultants from the Center for Teaching and Learning and from UW-IT lead workshops and are available throughout the week to provide training and support.

A few months after the institute, participants present their work in a “critical friends” setting, with evaluation and feedback from peers.

Participants receive $3,500 for full attendance and participation during the institute and successful completion of the peer-review sessions.

Part 2 – (Teach and Share)

Participants receive a second installment of $3,500 for completing the following three requirements:

  • Teach the redesigned course. One or two graduate students will be available to provide technology support Fellows throughout the year.
  • Share your story – what you did, what you learned – in any two contexts:

1. Present to the UW community at the annual Teaching and Learning symposium, a UW-IT Ignite event, or departmental seminar.
2. Share  with the broader community through either a reflective blog (while teaching), video, or website/ePortfolio, which will then be highlighted on the CTL website.

Application procedure

Full-time faculty and lecturers, as individuals or teams, from the Seattle campus are eligible and welcome to apply. We seek instructors who are committed to truly transforming their course – both in format and design. Furthermore, 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 a two-page proposal, current course syllabus, and a letter of support from a department chair, director, or dean. You can learn more here.

Applications are no longer being accepted.
