Learning Innovation, in partnership with the Duke Graduate School, offers a semester-long fellowship program to provide PhD students professional development opportunities in the growing area of digital education and online college teaching.

The Bass Digital Education Fellowship  offers PhD students an opportunity to collaborate on digital projects in partnership with Duke faculty and under the guidance of Learning Innovation, where we support faculty to advance teaching innovation, to explore new technologies for learning, and to develop new online education models and programs.

The program helps graduate students develop new skills to distinguish themselves in the academic job market and to explore emerging career paths in education technology, digital publishing, online education, and teaching and learning innovation. Fellows will consult with Duke departments and/or individual faculty to uncover needs, research solutions, draft project proposals, and execute a digital project in support of undergraduate education. Fellows who complete the program will also partially fulfill the requirements for the Certificate in College Teaching.
