Learning Design Fellowship

This summer, LATS Learning Design is offering three design fellowships to encourage the creation of quality online courses in collaboration with a Learning Experience Designer for use in Baylor graduate and undergraduate curricula.

Fellowships are available for full-time Baylor faculty members (which can include tenured and tenure-track faculty, regular lecturers, and senior lecturers). The fellowships occur during summer 2022 and you will be designing an online course for fall 2022 or for spring/summer 2023.

Recipients of this teaching fellowship will receive a stipend of $1,250 (pretax) and will spend at minimum of 20 hours working with a Learning Experience Designer in-person or virtually who can provide guidance on designing an online course, structuring content, choosing learning assessments, building interactivity, and implementing best practices. Learning Design Fellows will also be asked to meet three times as a group with representatives of the University Libraries and the LATS Learning Design Team.

Additionally, fellows will be expected to be expected to share their experience with other faculty and graduate students by presenting on their course and the instructional design process in either a LATS offered seminar, one of the Academy for Teaching and Learning’s Seminars for Excellence in Teaching (SET), or another appropriate venue. The fellows' courses will also be showcased as a "model" to be shared with other faculty as needed.

To apply, candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief statement (1-2 pages) describing your proposed course, goals and rationale for applying for the fellowship, and a previous sample syllabus.

All applications are due by April 8, 2022. Recipients will be notified by April 29, 2022.

For additional information, and to submit your application, contact Chris Zakrzewski.
