Service-Learning Fellows

Service-Learning Fellows

Application Deadline: Friday, March 3, 2017, for the 2017-2018 academic year.

The Service-Learning Program at the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (CITL) would like to invite you to apply to be a Service-Learning Faculty Fellow. Service-Learning Faculty Fellows will be part of a learning community that explores issues related to service-learning and community-based research and will also serve as a resource for other instructors considering adopting a service-learning pedagogy or developing a community-based research design.

  • Six faculty on the Bloomington campus will be chosen as SL Faculty Fellows for the academic year.
  • Fellows can be either seasoned service-learning instructors/community-based researchers or exploring the possibility of developing a service-learning component/ community-based research project. 
  • Fellows will be part of a seminar to discuss common readings, local issues, curriculum development, and research design. Meetings will take place three times during the fall semester and three during the spring semester—the first meeting will be in early September. Meeting locations will vary; some may be held at local non-profit agencies. A variety of topics relevant to service-learning and community-based research will be explored.
  • Each fellow will receive a $750 award paid to their research account at the completion of the fellowship year.
