Teaching Research with Writing – A CIT/TWP Fellowship opportunity

The Center for Instructional Technology (CIT) and the Thompson Writing Program (TWP) are jointly offering a year-long Faculty Fellowship program to provide support for faculty interested in developing and evaluating new approaches to teaching research with writing to undergraduates in their disciplines. During the Fellowship, which runs from September 2011 to April 2012, participants will work together to learn teaching methodologies, pedagogical theories, and assessment strategies that enhance students’ critical thinking and overall engagement with writing and research.

Faculty that successfully complete the program receive $1,000 paid to a Duke discretionary or research account.  In the Fellowship, faculty have an opportunity to create or modify a course syllabus and assignments for a Research designated course and assess the impact of changes in the class.

The Fellowship is open to faculty teaching a Spring 2012 course with a significant research project in the discipline or with an “R” or “W” code.  The deadline for applications is September 20, 2011.  To find out more about the program or to apply, see the CIT’s Fellows website.
