Call for Applications for UNG Nominee to USG Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL) Fellows Program

2019-2020 SoTL Fellows Information

The USG will be moving this program to a bi-annual schedule. No Fellows cohort will be run in 2019-2020, but there will be a Fellows cohort for 2020-2021. Please check back in fall 2019 for updates on the application and information.

2018-2019 SoTL Fellows Information

The USG SoTL Fellows Program was created to foster and support a community of learners across the University System of Georgia (USG) as they design and develop classroom-based research projects.

Each year, up to ten participants are selected to represent the four sectors of colleges and universities in the USG. Fellows conduct individual research, or collaborate with other fellows to implement cross-institutional projects.

During the length of the program, participants:

  • Identify and develop a topic of interest
  • Craft research questions to explore that topic
  • Determine type(s) of data needed
  • Determine appropriate methods and analysis
  • Collect data
  • Learn to analyze data, write up results and conclusions, and prepare manuscripts for publication

Throughout the course of the fellowship, participants become familiar with existing scholarly research on teaching and learning, and are encouraged to develop a long-term SoTL research agenda of their own. Equally important, participants leave with resources to use and share on their own campuses as SoTL mentors and advocates.

Participants who successfully complete the program receive a $500 stipend.

For information about the USG SoTL Fellows Program, contact Denise P. Domizi or Mary Carney, co-directors of the program.
