Technology Teaching Fellows

June 20 – August 5, 2022: Online

The Technology Teaching Fellows Institute (TTFI) offers participants the chance to learn with other faculty members, CTL colleagues, and learning technologists.

Fellows propose, design, and develop a significant digital learning project related to a course that will be taught in the coming academic year (AY 2022-23). For example, participants might:

  • Redesign an existing online course
  • Develop a new online/hybrid course or an online version of an in-person course
  • Develop interactive digital components for a hybrid or in-person course

Throughout the program, fellows will:  

  • Explore evidence-based and inclusive practices
  • Identify learner-centered strategies for teaching in online and hybrid environments
  • Practice using UW-supported technologies to advance student engagement
  • Develop and get feedback from other fellows on a new/redesigned digital course or course components

Application procedure

All UW faculty members, regardless of technical ability, are invited to apply, either as individuals or as a two-person faculty team. We are especially interested in course transformations that will have broad impacts for undergraduate students.

How to apply:

Complete and submit the 2022 TTFI Application Form before March 18. The form asks for information on your targeted course and current teaching practices. You have the option of including a letter of support from your department chair describing the value of your proposed project in relation to student learning goals and outcomes, department curriculum, and faculty development.
