Applications Being Accepted for Summer-Fall 2015 Active Learning CIT Faculty Fellowship Program

The CIT is now accepting applications for its Summer-Fall 2015 Active Learning Faculty Fellowship.

Have you “flipped” your classroom? Would you like to try more active learning techniques in your course? Want to talk with other faculty about what they do in their classrooms?

The purpose of this Fellowship is help faculty achieve greater student learning and deeper engagement with course material by using active learning and flipped classroom techniques proven successful at Duke and elsewhere.  Participants will share teaching experiences with other faculty and practice with ideas from the pedagogical literature to help them redesign activities in a course they will teach in Fall 2015 or Spring 2016.  If you are already flipping your classroom or if you want to try, please join us to talk about what works, to try new methods in your course and to visit each other’s classrooms.

You must be teaching a course in Fall 2015 and be willing to participate in a series of meetings during Summer 2015 and classroom visits in the Fall semester with other faculty.  Participating faculty are eligible for up to $1,100 deposited to their Duke research account.

Applications are due Monday, April 27th, by 5:00 pm.  If you have any questions about the program, please contact the CIT.
