The purpose of the Fellowship in Teaching Innovation award is to encourage faculty members (full-time and part-time) to pursue teaching innovations at Western University. The Fellowship exists primarily, but not exclusively, to support undergraduate and professional school teaching (excludes postgraduate medical education programs) at the University, matching Western’s commitment to the highest standards and quality of undergraduate education.
Two Fellowships of up to $10,000 are awarded annually. Teaching innovation projects may take many forms, such as developing new strategies for student engagement or initiatives involving the novel incorporation of educational technology into classroom settings. The award may be used to develop teaching innovation projects through the purchase of release-time, support for graduate students, acquisition of technology, or to attend teaching conferences.
The deadline for receipt of applications is March 1, 2020. Application procedures can be found at: https://teaching.uwo.ca/research/grants/fti-award.html
