Applications are currently open for several exciting opportunities ― Mosaic Faculty Fellows, the Spring 2024 cohort of Digital Gardener Faculty Fellows, Individual Mack Fellowships, and Next.IU Faculty Fellows. And applications will soon open for Extended Reality Initiative (XRI) Faculty Fellows Grants.
I've included short descriptions and application deadlines below, but be sure to follow the included links to learn more about the considerable perks of each.
2024 Mosaic Faculty Fellows
Applications are open for the next round of Mosaic Faculty Fellows. This year, the Mosaic Faculty Fellows Program will support three groups of Fellows focused on three topics. The options include exploring active learning in:
- Hybrid Learning Environments
- Online Learning Environments
- Inclusive and Accessible Learning Environments
The 2024 IU Mosaic Faculty Fellows will begin their tenure at the Mosaic Institute, held online on Friday, January 12 and Friday, January 19 (attend only one according to your schedule). The program will conclude at the end of the Fall 2024 semester.
Applications are due by December 8. Learn more and apply here.
Spring 2024 Digital Gardener Faculty Fellows
The Digital Gardener Faculty Fellows Program is a faculty-created, faculty-led program invested in skill development, pedagogy and practice, and cultivating a community of educators committed to digital literacy, digital creativity, and digital learning.
The program aims to share best practices, offer exposure to cutting edge platforms and approaches, and enable faculty to better prepare students for an increasingly digital world. The underlying goal is to prepare faculty and students to thrive in digital environments.
Applications are due by December 1. Learn more and apply here.
Individual Mack Fellowships
The goal of the Mack Fellowship program is to promote and enhance the community of IU faculty engaged in the scholarship of teaching and learning, often known as SoTL.
Each year the Mack Center selects fellows to conduct ambitious research pertaining to teaching and learning, and to participate in our community of SoTL scholars. Fellows not only work on their own research with the mentorship of the community, but also have opportunities for collaborating on additional research projects.
Projects should be innovative, be well grounded in the emerging body of knowledge about SoTL, and have clear goals to improve students' learning or advance our understanding of the teaching and learning process.
Proposals are due by November 30. Learn more and apply here.
Next.IU Faculty Fellows
Are you interested in finding tech solutions that support student success? Do you want to work with IU's instructional technology experts one-on-one?
If you have an innovative idea for using an existing IU tech tool, want to explore tech not yet available at IU, or are interested in creating something brand new, a Next.IU fellowship could be for you.
The year-long program is open to full-time faculty from any IU campus. Support is available from UITS to assess, develop, and pilot your idea. And the fellowship includes financial support and incentives to focus on the use of technology in teaching.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Get started by sharing your idea; we'll work with you on developing a project proposal.
Extended Reality Initiative (XRI) Faculty Fellows Grant
XRI Faculty Fellowships are expanding to include IU Indianapolis and IU Bloomington this year. The purpose of these fellowships is to introduce extended reality technologies to faculty and inspire integration of these immersive technologies into their courses.
This can be done through the development and implementation of a particular Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) assignment, project, or activity during the semester to improve student learning and success.
Stay tuned for the official announcement and more details on the XRI website.
