The Baylor University Libraries are excited to once again offer teaching fellowships to full-time faculty members (including tenured and tenure-track faculty, regular lecturers, and senior lecturers) and graduate teaching assistants (teachers of record). These fellowships support excellence in teaching and learning and provide opportunities for original research by encouraging the use of rare books, archives, and other primary source materials in Baylor graduate and undergraduate curricula.
Selected fellowship recipients will receive a stipend of $1,000 (after taxes) and be required to spend at least one week during the summer working with librarians in Baylor’s special collections to discover rare materials in our archives that will enhance pedagogy.
For details on fellowship requirements and application procedures, visit http://sites.baylor.edu/teachingwithspecialcollections/teaching-fellows-program/2018-call-for-proposals/. Applications are due April 6, 2018, and recipients will be notified by April 27, 2018.
If you would like to hear from last year’s fellowship recipients, plan to attend the Academy for Teaching and Learning’s Seminars for Excellence in Teaching (SET) on Tuesday, March 27 from 3:30-4:30 pm in Jones Library 200. Register for the SET here: https://www.baylor.edu/atl/index.php?id=873859.
