eLearning Faculty FellowshipPartner(s): - Jewish Theological Seminary
The eLearning Faculty Fellowship is an inter-institutional collaboration of the Jewish Theological Seminary's Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education, Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion, Yeshiva University, and the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning (CCNMTL) to support the design and implementation of educational technology projects in the three partner institutions.
The fellowship program will be offered over two years and will target faculty of the schools of education and related disciplines at each institution. Approximately 20 faculty from the three institutions will be selected through an application process to comprise a cohort of fellows. Fellows attend workshops developed by CCNMTL to learn strategies, tools, and approaches for using educational technologies to improve student engagement and learning. Each fellow is also asked to design an educational technology project in his/her own teaching with the support of the home institution.
The first fellowship began in spring of 2013 and culminated in a showcase of faculty educational technology projects in March 2014. The second cohort of fellows began in April 2014.
The eLearning Faculty Fellowship is funded by the Jim Joseph Foundation.Access: Private
