The SoTL Fellows Program provides USI faculty members with the opportunity to develop and carry out a scholarly project that systematically investigates connections between one’s teaching and student learning and/or student success. Through participation in a learning community, Fellows will develop a research project focused on connections between teaching and student learning and outcomes, receive support and guidance during the process, and establish collegial connections across disciplines. Participants will receive a $1,000 stipend after the successful completion of the multi-semester program, which starts in March 2021 and concludes in May 2022. Faculty interested in participating in the SoTL Fellows program must apply by February 15, 2021.
As a member of the faculty at USI, one serves both as a teacher and a scholar who contributes to their discipline(s), students, peers, and community.

Acknowledging the commitment of teacher-scholars who directly impact student learning and success, the SoTL Fellows program provides faculty members with a multi-semester opportunity to enhance one’s scholarship on teaching and student learning.
Through participating in the SoTL Fellows program, each selected participant will:
