The Lecturer Teaching Fellows Program at Berkeley provides lecturers with an exceptional opportunity to foster a community of practice while working individually or in teams to build teaching and learning tools, templates, and resources for their individual courses and the entire campus community. The program supports Fellows in generating dynamic tools and resources for enriching and/or innovating teaching practices on campus. The tools and resources generated will be highlighted prominently on the Center for Teaching & Learning website and disseminated to faculty across campus. Lecturers make outstanding contributions to the high quality of teaching on campus, and this program showcases best practices from this community.
The program is open to new AND previous Lecturer Teaching Fellows. Applications for the 2018-19 academic year will be accepted until Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.
Up to eight lecturers will be selected to participate in a series of monthly workshops/discussions on topics of interest and presentations of work in progress. The program is open to continuing appointees and to “pre-six” lecturers.
We encourage lecturers to take advantage of this unique opportunity to engage with colleagues about teaching issues such as engaging students in large enrollment courses, academic integrity, group work, rubric use and development, improving and evaluating student learning, and integrating technology, to name just a few. This year we are particularly interested in development that supports discovery learning.
Visit the Lecturer Teaching Fellows Program webpage for more information including application instructions and a description and sampling of projects from previous participants. If you have any questions, please email the Center for Teaching & Learning with “Lecturer Teaching Fellows” in the subject line.
