MTLE Faculty Fellow Program

MTLE Faculty Fellow Program

For new faculty members on the tenure track, the road to tenure can be filled with many questions about the most effective teaching methods, how to design an inventive curriculum, and more. These are the exact questions that Madison Teaching and Learning Experience (MTLE) seeks to answer in their Faculty Fellow program. The year-long program is designed for early-career faculty with the goal of supporting “fast, efficient starts in the tenure process at UW-Madison” and will consist of three cohorts of about eight to ten faculty members. The program consists of three teaching institutes that occur between semesters, as well as weekly meetings during the semester.

At the teaching institutes, MTLE Faculty Fellow cohorts will network with MTLE partners, administrators, and leaders to discuss experiences and goals and plan for the academic year. The focus for the first semester of weekly meetings will be teaching and gather feedback as well as resources, while weekly meetings in the second semester will focus on designing and revising instruction. In addition to these meetings, fellows will be able to take advantage of mentored teaching, classroom visits, and real-time assessment to gain new skills and to create innovative curricula.

If you are a new faculty member at UW-Madison and at least two years away from being reviewed for tenure, plan on teaching at least one undergraduate course in the Spring 2013 semester, and can commit to the full-year program, then you are eligible for this program. Applications (attached) are due to Sarah Miller at by November 1, 2012 at 4 p.m. The first sessions will be January 14 and 15, 2013. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to make the most out of your teaching experience at UW-Madison and get a helping hand on the road to tenure!
