The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning (CTTL) has announced the fall 2013 Innovative Teaching Fellows, selected by committee in October:

Read more about the fall 2013 Fellows' teaching and research interests online at the Center's website.
Each Innovative Teaching Fellow receives a course release for the semester prior to teaching in the Learning Studio to design a new course or re-design an existing course to teach in the Center's flexible, technology-rich learning space, the Learning Studio located in Des Peres Hall. The Fellowship's course release also provides an opportunity for full-time faculty to collaborate with the CTTL's instructional designers to re-conceptualize how active, cooperative, problem- and project-based learning strategies, pedagogically-centered learning technologies and learning space may influence the teaching and learning process.
This semester, CTTL instructional designers are working with spring 2013 Fellows, who were announced earlier in Newslink and The Notebook, the CTTL's blog. The spring fellows are:
- Rebecca Aldrich, Ph.D., Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy
- Paul Lynch, Ph.D., Department of English
- Nathaniel Millett, Ph.D., Department of History
- Jintong Tang, Ph.D., Department of Management
The next Innovative Teaching Fellowship call for applications to teach in the Learning Studio in the spring 2014 will be announced Friday, Jan. 18, via the CTTL website and Newslink. Applications for the spring 2014 fellowship will be due by 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25.To learn more about the Innovative Teaching Fellowship, including eligibility and the application process, visit the Center's website.
The CTTL also works with full- and part-time faculty and graduate students on course design beyond the Innovative Teaching Fellowship. Those interested in course design are encouraged to contact Michaella Thornton, assistant director for Instructional Design, directly at 314-977-1910 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
