About eFellows

The Fellows program supports faculty and full-time lecturers in obtaining the resources needed to successfully pilot innovative technology-based projects that enhance student-focused instruction in courses and curriculum. Calls for proposals take place every year. The overall outcome of this program is to improve and enhance student learning and the scholarship of teaching through the integration of appropriate technology. 

the eFellows program is provided for tenure/tenure-track faculty and full-time lecturers through the collaboration between the Bruce K. Nelson Faculty Development Center, Faculty Senate, and the Division of IT. The program funding and coordination is administered by the Faculty Development Center.

Important Note: We understand that the current COVID-19 pandemic presents its own set of issues and different circumstances than years prior. Therefore, eFellows has an additional option for instructors. The eFellows committee is excited to offer support for the registration in Quality Matters workshops/classes to improve online teaching practices. These courses cover a range of topics from the design of course shells and instructional materials, to accessibility and building student engagement. All part-time lecturers, full-time lecturers, and faculty are eligible to apply. To learn more, visit the eFellows Quality Matters webpage.
