2016-2017 Fellowship Opportunity
Deadline: Friday, January 29, 2016
The Project for Interdisciplinary Pedagogy (PIP) provides an opportunity for
a diverse, highly motivated cohort of 4 to 6 University of Washington
doctoral candidates to develop their teaching skills in the context of an
integrative interdisciplinary program that spans the arts, humanities,
social and natural and sciences. Project fellows will work closely with
faculty mentors in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (IAS)
and create teaching portfolios that include evidence of hands-on experience
with various theories and practices of interdisciplinarity and
Prior to the start of autumn quarter, PIP fellows will participate with
their faculty mentors in a day-long workshop focused on interdisciplinarity
and interdisciplinary course design and pedagogy. During the autumn, winter,
and spring quarters, each fellow will teach one interdisciplinary course
(totaling three) in an area related to his or her teaching and research
interests, while engaging in quarterly workshops with the other students and
faculty in the cohort and continuing to work closely with mentors throughout
the year. Further teaching opportunities during the 2016-2017 academic year
may also become available.
Project 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.
Applicants should be advanced to doctoral candidacy in their academic
program at the time of appointment (September 2016) and have at least one
year of teaching experience. We encourage applications from any doctoral
student with a serious interest in interdisciplinary pedagogy and research.
We also strongly encourage applicants with an interest in the theory and
practice of community-based learning and/or service-learning course design.
