Bacca Fellowship Program

Bacca Faculty Fellows are a small cohort of faculty (all ranks eligible) who commit to trying new methods or approaches in one of their courses which are consistent with the 2022-23 Bacca focus: Aligning teaching and scholarship. This year the fellowship will focus on helping faculty align their own writing with teaching strong communication skills to undergraduates in their disciplines. After participating in a day-long writing and pedagogy workshop in August, participants will design or revise a course or assignment that applies their own writing insights to their teaching. Fellows will have the opportunity to reflect upon what works, locate what could work better, and develop a dynamic plan to achieve their desired learning outcomes for their students, considering teaching alongside their other roles and responsibilities as faculty. The year-long fellowship (August-May), includes meeting monthly with fellow participants as a faculty learning community (FLC) in the fall and individual consultations with the fellowship director in the spring. Preference given to instructors whose course will be taught in spring semester, 2023. Bacca Faculty Fellows receive a stipend of $1500, payable into a research account in two installments (December and May).


Application deadline is May 5, 2022. Application can be found here. Spaces are limited
