Faculty Fellows

The Learning Innovation Faculty Fellows program provides semester- or year-long support and development for a group of faculty working together to incorporate new and innovative pedagogies into the curriculum of a program or department.

The Fellowship is open to groups of five or more full-time Duke faculty. Each faculty participant receives $500 per semester, and the group receives extensive consulting from our expert staff.

Visit a Classroom

The Visit a Classroom program provides Duke faculty with an opportunity to observe their colleagues teaching in their classrooms. Three faculty participants observe at least one class taught by each faculty member in the group to get ideas to enhance their own teaching and classroom experience.

Applications for the Visit a Classroom program are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. It is available to any Duke faculty member or instructor teaching during the current semester.
