CAT Teaching Fellowships

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching (CAT) announces a request for proposals for three endowed Teaching Fellowships beginning in 1998-99. Supported proposals may begin as early as summer 1998. Fellowship funding may stipends, release time, technology purchases, conference travel, or other activities appropriate to the Fellowships.

One Fellowship supports a faculty member who will work directly with CAT to develop and implement a project measuring the use of technology in teaching and learning. This Fellow will collaborate with faculty and students involved in technology initiatives of the Bush-Hewlett Faculty Development Grant, as well as with faculty who use the Center's electronic classrooms. CAT recently purchased the Flashlight Current Student Inventory, a resource for assessing the use of educational technologies. This resource, and others identified or developed by the faculty member, will be used in the project. (Additional information about the Flashlight Current Student Inventory is available in CAT and at

Two Teaching Fellowships are intended for faculty members who wish to integrate technology into the teaching and learning process. Projects could include (but are not limited to) the construction of a course Web site, the production of multimedia course materials for a CD-ROM, the development of on-line study drills for student use, student development of Web sites as course projects, or the incorporation of e-mail discussion in a course.

The Center invites proposals from interested faculty members. Please include the following in your proposal:

  • a brief (2 pp.) description of project goals and components;
  • a timeline for completion of project stages; and
  • a description of funding allocation for the project (this need not contain budget figures, but rather an approximate assessment of proportion of funds which should be made available for stipend, release time, computer purchase, and/or travel support).

Please submit your proposal to Todd Stanislav at P.O. Box 73A or on or before Monday, 13 April 1998.

The W. K. Kellogg Foundation and the State of Louisiana have generously provided funding for these Teaching Fellowships.
