Teaching Inquiry Fellows

The goal of the Teaching Inquiry Fellows program is to engage participants in a reflective community of inquiry into teaching, paying particular attention to both the development of inclusive learning environments across contexts, and experiential learning activities of all kinds including engagement with the SAIL framework and platform.

Discussions and activities provide opportunities to explore assumptions about teaching and learning by examining multiple forms of evidence — including empirical and theoretical literature, the work of students, and feedback from both students and peers.

Expectations and time commitment:

  • Attendance at a day-long kick-off retreat.
  • The TIF cohort will meet bi-weekly for 60 minutes during the 2021 Spring and Fall semesters.
  • Between meetings, participants will be asked to read 2-3 articles on a particular topic and reflect on how that topic is relevant in their teaching practice.
  • Each participant will maintain an individual electronic portfolio in which they will respond to prompts relevant to meeting activities and readings.
  • Optional opportunities will be provided for peer observation of teaching.

Stipend:

Participants will receive a stipend of $1,000 for full participation in the program.

Eligibility: 

The Teaching Inquiry Fellows program is open to all full-time faculty and co-curricular educators who teach for-credit courses at Northeastern University. This includes tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty, as well as co-op faculty and instructors teaching courses such as Introduction to College. If you have questions about your eligibility, please contact Nick Wilson at [email protected].
