Public Scholarship and Engagement is accepting applications for the first cohort of the Community Engaged Learning (CEL) Faculty Fellows program.
This faculty development program, set to run in winter and spring 2020, aims to acknowledge and reward exemplary individuals who are eager to incorporate community-framed problems and questions into their teaching. These leaders recognize the value of student learning experiences outside the classroom that address issues of public concern.
This year’s program will include monthly meetings from January to June 2020. Some of the questions the program will address include: How can engagement enhance student learning experiences and outcomes? How can students be prepared to engage responsibly and thoughtfully with community partners? How can instructors build mutually beneficial relationships with community partners?
Through the CEL Faculty Fellows program, Public Scholarship and Engagement will provide concrete tools and facilitate opportunities for UC Davis faculty members across all disciplines to create and improve community-based student learning experiences. These learning experiences will help cultivate and foster a culture of engagement at UC Davis through impactful partnerships with non-university groups. Fellows who complete the program will receive a one-time honorarium of $1,000 during the quarter the proposed course is taught.
All full-time members of the Academic Senate and Federation who teach degree-seeking students, regardless of discipline, are encouraged to apply by November 15, 2019. Applicants will be notified of their application status no later than December 15, 2019.
