If you have experimented with emerging educational tools and you would like to work with other educators around the state to figure out how to adapt them to ‘leverage learning,’ please take note of a call for applications for fellowships to participate in the Faculty Collaboratives Project of the Association of American Colleges and Universities.
Texas is one of five states participating in the first phase of AAC&U’s Faculty Collaboratives Project—a project that seeks to engage educators in adapting and applying educational tools that have been developed by AAC&U, Lumina, and other nationally recognized groups—such as the LEAP learning outcomes, the VALUE rubrics, General Education Maps and Markers (GEMs), the Tuning projects, the Degree Qualifications Profile, etc..
While these tools have been developed and vetted by faculty across the nation, their practical application is dependent upon the creative work of educators within their own classrooms and settings, according to the official statement.
Also from the announcement. Note the stipend:
LEAP-Texas has stepped up to facilitate the work. We will be selecting five Faculty Fellows to facilitate statewide conversations around the various tools. Each Fellow will receive a stipend of $4,000 per year for two years and will receive travel support to project meetings. Fellows will engage with each other, with educators across Texas, and with Fellows in the other states to explore the ways that various tools can be put to use within and across academic programs. Fellows will help to convene creative conversations around the tools and to create a library of innovative examples, samples, and practices that can be widely shared.
Here is the full statement.
