Technology-Enhanced Active Learning (TEAL) Classroom
TEAL Fellows Program
In order to support faculty members as they transform their teaching to take advantage of the TEAL classroom, we have created the TEAL Fellows Program.
Please consider applying if you would like to:
- engage your students in an active classroom environment
- move your students from simply knowing the material to applying it
- help students explore key concepts in depth
- have your students work in teams on challenging tasks
- teach in a state-of-the-art classroom designed to support group work and collaboration
How the program works:
- six to twelve TEAL Fellows will participate in a weekly seminar starting in Fall 2017.
- seminar meetings will consist of workshop sessions, guest presentations, as well as visits to other TEAL classrooms and will be designed to train faculty in effective uses of the TEAL classroom.
- the Fellows will continue to meet weekly in Spring 2018 as they begin to teach in the TEAL classroom.
- fellows will receive a stipend for participation and will be asked to present their work at a future University-wide session.
Those interested in becoming a TEAL Fellow may apply online here.
Applications must be submitted by June 5, 2017; applicants will be notified by end of June.
