For the next academic year (2008/2009), CELT is offering the opportunity for a new cohort of fellows to participate in this program in the spring of 2009. Successful applicants will receive small-group tutelage in how to improve their teaching and an opportunity to discuss teaching challenges and successes with fellow faculty members, who represent different academic disciplines but share a passion for teaching. In addition to in-person meetings on the Medford campus, participants will be paired up with a colleague and a CELT facilitator to receive peer feedback on their teaching. The expectation is that you will observe a colleague twice and receive feedback twice. If you do not teach during the spring semester, we can come in and videotape you during the summer or fall and you can use the videotaped sessions for review with a colleague.

Faculty fellows can benefit either from a course reduction, or from a reserve of $4,500 to be used for research or teaching purposes (hiring a graduate or teaching assistant, attending professional conferences, purchasing educational materials, etc.)

The seminar will meet Thursdays from 8:30am to 11:30am on the Medford campus, starting January 15th, 2009.

This is a unique opportunity for Tufts faculty to increase their knowledge about student learning and to enhance their teaching skills. We strongly encourage faculty from all schools to submit an application as this lends to the rich discussion that makes the seminar successful.
