Application procedure

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018 Technology Teaching Fellows Institute. Please check back in February 2019 for information about the 2019/2020 application process.

Permanent 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).

Applicants with varying levels of technical ability and knowledge are encouraged to apply. CTL and Learning Technologies consultants will be available to provide training and support at the week-long Institute.
