We seek a new cohort of three CTL graduate fellows, working together to further CTL programs and services at WashU.
The Center for Teaching and Learning advances WashU’s mission of educational excellence by supporting a diverse community of teachers and learners. The center promotes inclusive, evidence-based pedagogy, develops teaching-focused collaborations among campus partners, and strives to create a transformational educational experience inside and outside the classroom.
To this end, the CTL is seeking three graduate fellows who will extend our current work and develop new programs and services that facilitate teaching and learning at WashU. Opportunities for fellows include supporting graduate student programming, data analytics projects, co-facilitating CTL workshops/virtual conversations, community building initiatives, developing just-in-time teaching resources, designing a new classroom observation protocol, and publishing scholarship of teaching and learning. Importantly, the CTL facilitators will work with fellows to provide them with projects that align with their professional goals and help them gain experience in the field of educational development. The fellows will work closely with CTL staff members who will serve as mentors on particular projects.
We seek to hire a team with:
One graduate fellow for educational development in the HASS (Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences) disciplines
One graduate fellow for educational development in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) disciplines
One graduate fellow for educational technology
Although we are seeking graduate fellows with specific fields of expertise, all graduate fellows will collaborate on projects as a team. Most projects are not pre-assigned to a specific role but will be discussed and chosen by one or more fellows with guidance from the CTL mentors. Hence, graduate fellows will be selected not only on their own expertise but also based on how they complement the expertise and experiences of other fellows.
Please apply if you are interested even if you do not have all the qualifications listed below. You may have something else that we did not include on this list, but that provides value to our team.
