Evidence-Based Teaching Fellowship

The Evidence-based Teaching fellowship (EBT) is a 2-year long fellowship where a cohort of UW faculty members develop research-based, reflective strategies for addressing a current instructional challenge. In the first year EBT fellows work together to explore the existing research on the topic and design a classroom intervention related to the instructional challenge. In the second year, fellows implement their intervention in one of their courses and share their findings with their EBT cohort.

2024-2026 theme

Tools that use artificial intelligence (AI) continue to transform how students learn and engage in our courses. The 2024-2026 EBT fellows will identify ways to integrate AI into assignment design that are informed by evidence-based, reflective teaching practices.

EBT Fellowship goals

  • Foster cross-disciplinary connections within UW’s teaching community
  • Deepen understanding of evidence-based, learner-centered pedagogies related to the theme
  • Develop and implement pedagogical strategies that enrich the student experience in in-person, hybrid, and/or online classrooms
  • Provide faculty members with opportunities to develop professional accomplishments in teaching

What faculty are saying…

“For me, the best part of the fellowship was meeting and learning from colleagues I wouldn’t get to meet in my regular work life.”
Ching-In Chen, Assistant Professor, Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, Bothell

“I entered the fellowship with such a narrow-minded view of what teamwork and collaboration in a classroom may look like, and those views were immediately challenged. The fellowship opened my mind to the many different perspectives and approaches, and I am eager to learn more next AY.”
Marion Eberly, Associate Professor, Milgard School of Business, Tacoma

“I left each meeting with actionable ideas that I can use in the classroom.”
Kristiina Hurme, Assistant Teaching Professor, Biology, Seattle
