The overarching goal of this program is to provide faculty with an opportunity to research and/or enhance their understanding of a self-selected pedagogical approach or high-impact strategy that leads to Integrative Learning. The program also supports faculty in generating resources to be made available via CILTI’s teaching resources and developing and delivering professional development sessions based on their research.
Integrative Learning Fellows will complete an application process wherein they will identify their selected research project (pedagogical approach or high-impact strategy) and provide other information as required. Selected Fellows will serve a one academic year term. As a cohort selected Fellows will participate in regularly scheduled professional development sessions (i.e. a general introduction to Integrative Learning, classroom research design, methods, and strategies, professional development delivery techniques, and publication/document design). All Fellows must provide at least one professional development session to be made available via the CILTI.
Fellows will be allotted an allowance of $2,200 each to be used to purchase materials and/or resources (including journals, online access, books, etc.) specific to their research. The allowance may also be used to support participation in a relevant institute, workshop, conference, webinar(s) or other appropriate academic enrichment activity.
Fellows are encouraged to apply for the district’s Pay for Performance program. Positive completion of the project will result in an adjustment to base salary. Acceptance into the Fellows program does not guarantee approval of Pay for Performance. Fellows must adhere to and satisfy the criteria of the Pay for Performance program.
