Lisa Kuehne, PhD

Assistant Director of Graduate and Postdoc Programs

The CTL graduate fellows program provides hands-on experience and exposure to the field of Educational Development and similar alt-ac work in higher education. The fellows work together as a cohort to further CTL programs and services at WashU. Graduate fellows may support existing work or develop new programs and services. Examples of fellow projects include supporting graduate student programming, data analytics projects, co-facilitating CTL workshops/virtual conversations, community building initiatives, developing just-in-time teaching resources, and publishing scholarship of teaching and learning. The fellows work closely with CTL staff members who will serve as mentors on their projects. CTL facilitators also provide guidance for each fellow, from the development of projects that align with specific professional goals to identifying external experiences that help them build experience in the field. The selection process is competitive, resulting in cohorts of fellows with a diverse set of expertise and experiences with the CTL and at the university.
