About the Institute

The Center for Teaching and Learning and UW-IT are pleased to offer a week-long institute for faculty members who want to design an online or hybrid course, or 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.

The Institute is held on the UW Seattle campus.

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. Participants are expected to attend daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

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 hybrid or online 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.


“This was an incredible experience”

-Andrew J. Boydston, Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry


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.


“The TTF provided concrete support, varied examples, and a collegial environment for the concept, design, and implementation of my first hybrid course. I gained connections to other faculty and staff who helped me refine and develop my online pedagogical skills.”

-Regina Yung Lee, Lecturer, Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies

“TTF provided me dedicated time to prep for my first 100% online class. During the workshop I got the opportunity to learn about how to most efficiently and effectively use the technological tools we have available on campus, as well as see how my peers across campus organize their classes. By the end of the week I had completed my syllabus and had a structure in place for how each week’s module would be organized. Spending that week together was invaluable and I have been highly recommending the TTF program to my peers!”

-Carly A. Roberts, Assistant Professor, College of Education
