Ursula Williams Faculty Fellowship

**The fellowship is suspended for academic year 2020-21. More information is forthcoming.**

The Ursula Williams Faculty Fellowship is a one-semester fellowship for Professors of Practice/Teaching Professors in the College of Arts and Letters that focuses on second language acquisition, technology and pedagogy. The fellowship entails:

  • A course release for the semester of the fellowship. This course-release time, approximately 8-10 hours/week, should be devoted to working on fellowship-related material.
  • Working closely with CSLC and Kaneb Center staff over the course of a semester to deepen and enrich the fellow's understanding of technologies, approaches, and best practices in second language acquisition.
  • Producing an e-Portfolio containing ten (10) artifacts, reflections, and observations related to teaching with technology.
  • Developing and completing a research project or a scholarship of teaching and learning study focused on an aspect of the Fellow's own teaching practice.
  • Proposing an abstract and, if accepted, presenting a project at The Midwest Scholarship of Teaching & Learning Conference at IUSB in April.
  • Attending a conference on college teaching within six months of the fellowship (funded up to $700). The CSLC highly recommends the Wakonse Conference on College Teaching in May.
