Track 1 TEK Faculty Fellows will receive an overload of $7,000 during the semester the Discover course is taught (up to one semester per academic year).
Track 2 TEK Faculty Fellows will receive a stipend of $3,500 evenly divided across two semesters (two payments of $1,750) during the year of participation in the TEK Faculty Fellows program.
Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) will follow a common experience in terms of goals, outcomes, texts and materials, and an overall curriculum for the two phases of the year: design and development in the fall semester, and implementation and teaching in the spring semester. Major topics for the FLCs will include transdisciplinary course and assignment design, team teaching, collaborative learning and teaching professional skills, and problem- and project-based learning. Pedagogical texts and case studies will serve as “course material” for the FLCs to discuss, apply, and use to design and implement their own courses and assignments, which in turn will function as exemplars for subsequent cohorts.
As part of the FLC structure of the TEK faculty development program, faculty will engage in an individual (or team, in the case of team teaching) consultation sequence with CELT staff to support their work in the larger FLC during the fall semester. During the spring semester, faculty will engage in a modified version of CELT’s midterm student feedback process. This student-driven process will collect valuable information about student perceptions of learning and experiences in the courses as well as in relation to the student learning outcomes of TEK.
After implementation and teaching, faculty in both tracks will continue to receive support from CELT in the form of consultations, facilitated student feedback, and opportunities to continue to share and collaborate with and across cohorts.
