Become a CTL Digital Pedagogy Fellow

The CTL Digital Pedagogy Fellows (DPF) program is designed to assist all instructors of record in leveraging technology to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of learning in their courses.  

Not going to be on campus?  No problem.  

The program is a facilitated, online asynchronous learning experience consisting of daily activities that can be covered at your own pace within the one-week session. You do not have to be on campus to participate and there are will be no scheduled meetings until you have completed the session. Approximately 2-3 hours of your time will be spent each day developing a course plan that uses technology to enhance information delivery, learner engagement, and/or assessment based on selected readings, short lecturettes, engaging with colleagues, and reflecting on the topics individually. Total time commitment is 12-18 hours.

As a result of participation in this program you will be able to build a course plan that reflects:

- The guiding learning theories of your teaching practice

- The use of digital pedagogy to optimize cognition with particular emphasis on the areas of attention, memory, thinking and motivation.

The design of an effective digital learning experience using a design methodology as well as available resources and expertise.

- Consideration of content accessibility and affordability.

- And contains:

  • Measurable learning outcomes

100% of DP Fellows agree that "the DPF program helped me advance the use of digital pedagogy to rethink the design of my course." 

Says one participant: "I sometimes feel like I'm fairly up on this 'stuff,' and we're all busy ... but in reality, I'm no more 'up' on it than anyone else, and I was exposed here to new ideas, new research, and, quite practically, a high number of new, specific applications and approaches."
