Call for Proposals: Digital Pedagogy Fellowships 2023



Published April 24, 2023

The Digital Pedagogy Fellowship provides a practice-based professional learning experience for faculty who are seeking to incorporate technology into their teaching and create innovative digital scholarship with their students. The fellowship includes a three-day summer institute program, monthly meetings with fellowship participants during the fall 2023 semester, and a showcase for the Smith community in Spring 2024. Faculty will have the opportunity for hands-on training with staff partners and digital innovation spaces, build their digital fluency and engage in a community of practice with other faculty to enhance their teaching in meaningful ways. Fellowship recipients will receive a $500 research grant awarded at the completion of the program in Spring 2024.
