Innovative Teaching Fellowship- Call for Applications

Each semester, the Reinert Center awards a small number of Innovative Teaching Fellowships to full-time, permanent teaching faculty who will teach in our highly-flexible, technology-rich classroom, the Learning Studio.

Innovative Teaching Fellows spend the first semester of their fellowship working closely with Reinert Center staff to (re)design a course to be taught in the Learning Studio.  The course is then taught in the Studio during the second semester of the fellowship period.  The fellowship comes with a course release to support course (re)design work and various kinds of support from Reinert Center staff, including both pedagogical and technical support.

James H. Korn Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Award- Call for Nominations

One of the goals of the Reinert Center is to promote faculty inquiry and scholarly research on teaching and learning. In 2006, the Center established the James H. Korn Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Award in recognition of Psychology Professor Emeritus James Korn’s many contributions to research on teaching and learning. One award of $500 is given to the home department of the awardee(s) to be used as professional development funds for the awardee(s).

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) involves researching questions about teaching activities and student learning by formally studying the teaching and learning activities of one’s course; answering those questions by assessing student learning and effectiveness of teaching strategies; and publicly sharing results of this inquiry in a setting that invites peer review, such as a publication or conference presentation.
