Topic Areas for Fellowships 2018

By combining ideas and innovative spirit with expertise in academic thought, we can work collaboratively to appropriately apply emerging technologies for teaching and learning. Currently we are seeking faculty who are interested in working with us in the following areas. If you have an idea for a Fellowship, the first step in the application process is to email tltfellows@psu.edu to schedule a conversation. The call for 2018-2019 Fellows will close on April 20th, 2018.

Digital Fluency

As the University now provides the Adobe Creative Cloud to all faculty, staff, and students across the commonwealth, we are interested in exploring how we can partner with educators in the transformative integration of creative and making tools to support digital fluency. The Creative Cloud covers a wide range of software, including user experience design, presenting, web publishing, and image editing, just to name a few. The Adobe Creative Cloud represents an industry standard across many disciplines, and we want our students to be equipped with the skills to create new artifacts and knowledge with the help of these tools.

Data Empowered Learning

We recently formalized a data-empowered learning team at TLT, and are expanding our work with faculty on how to leverage data to support teaching and learning. We are looking for faculty interested in participating in some of our current work, including the use of tools that forecast student performance, tools to help faculty rapidly prototype course designs, and tools designed to provide formative feedback on student writing. We also seek faculty with ideas for new uses of our ever-growing collection of data from our teaching and learning ecosystems.

Immersive Experiences

With the opening of the Immersive Experiences Lab in spring 2018, we now have additional capacity to support faculty in the creation and use of immersive experiences to support teaching and learning. Immersive experiences is an encompassing phrase we like to use, as it encapsulates technology-rich environments such as virtual reality and 360° video. Whether you have ideas on how to integrate existing immersive experiences into your learning environment, or aim to create new environments, we are interested in hearing about your ideas!
