The Lilly Graduate Fellows Program is offering ten fellowships of $3000
per year for three years for those who are considering a career teaching at
religiously-affiliated colleges and universities. Those selected will comprise
a cohort that will attend four national conferences over three years at Lilly's
expense. Lilly Graduate Fellows and their mentors will also participate in a
distance colloquium that involves group readings and discussions over the
course of the three year program. This colloquium requires an average time
commitment of 2-3 hours per week. The students in the past six cohorts have

Active Learning Strategies for The Flipped Classroom: A Mini Workshop
November 14, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m., CGC Seminar Room 124
What would you do with your class time if you didn't have to lecture? That
question is at the heart of the reason faculty are attracted to the flipped
classroom model (reversing what we typically do in the classroom with what
students do on their own outside of class time) and concerned about it at the same
time. In this mini-workshop, we'll examine active learning strategies to help
structure small group work and discussion for the flipped classroom. Participants
are encouraged to bring course syllabi and come prepared to work on a course plan.
(Note: this session does not cover technology such as Tegrity for creating lectures.)
