Teaching Research with Writing – A CIT/TWP Fellowship Opportunity

The Center for Instructional Technology and the Thompson Writing Program are jointly offering a semester-long Faculty Fellowship program, providing support for faculty interested in developing and evaluating new approaches to teaching research and writing.  The Fellows will meet during the spring semester to discuss problems and strategies for more effective teaching of research together with and by means of writing.

The Fellowship is targeted at teaching faculty in academic departments who teach “R” courses during 2011 and graduate students can apply independently or with a faculty member.  Faculty that complete the program are eligible for a $1,000 stipend paid to a Duke discretionary/research account; graduate student participants will receive $500.

The deadline for applications is November 1, 2010.  More details and an application can be found on the CIT’s web page about the Teaching Research with Writing Fellowship.
