Teaching Fellowship for PhD Students

The Graduate School Fund for Excellence and Innovation (GSFEI) and Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (IAS) at the University of Washington Bothell are collaborating to offer a teaching fellowship for 4-6 doctoral students who have been advanced to candidacy and are interested in the theory and practice of interdisciplinarity and interdisciplinary pedagogy.

Fellows in the Project of Interdisciplinary Pedagogy (PIP) work closely with faculty mentors in IAS, participate in a day-long workshop focused on interdisciplinarity and interdisciplinary course design and pedagogy, teach one interdisciplinary course each quarter on the Bothell campus in an area related to their teaching and research interests, and engage in quarterly workshops with the other graduate students and faculty mentors in the cohort. Further teaching opportunities during the 2013-2014 academic year may also become available.

Fellows will be compensated at the appropriate annual Graduate Student Service Appointment rate, including tuition waivers, and will receive an additional stipend of $750 for their participation in the early fall and quarterly workshops. For more information about eligibility and application procedures and the program itself, please go to the PIP website: http://www.uwb.edu/IAS/about/pip.xhtml. Or, feel free to contact the co-directors of PIP for 2011-2012: Bruce Burgett (bburgett@uwb.edu), David Goldstein (dgoldstein@uwb.edu), and Martha Groom (mgroom@uwb.edu).
