The Faculty Development and Innovation Center is accepting applications for the Fall 2023 FDIC Fellow through April 1, 2023.
The competitive Faculty Development and Innovation (FDIC) Fellows Program is designed to foster faculty engagement and scholarship in teaching and learning at Eastern Illinois University. The fellowship supports one faculty member each fall and spring semester in their advancement and completion of quality, innovative projects that aim to improve the understanding of teaching and learning.
For complete fellowship expectations, including the application requirements, please see the Fall 2023 Fellowship description.
The FDIC Fellowship is a one semester commitment. Fellows will collaborate with the Director of Faculty Development in conceptualizing and operationalizing their project; the director will oversee the direction and progress of the project. It is the fellows’ responsibility to organize meetings with the director and other interested or integral individuals.
FDIC Fellows will develop and conduct a workshop or webinar on their project, and on implementing insights from their research to EIU faculty, instructors, and staff. FDIC staff with provide support in developing the workshop and/or webinar.
Fellowship recipients may be invited to mentor new FDIC Fellows following their tenure and to serve, as needed, to consult with colleagues after their fellowship is completed.
Dr. DeRuiter-Willems is curating a project on the best practices and uses of OERs, including how to evaluate, source, and utilize these resources across disciplines.
