The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce the awarding of four Engaged Learning Fellowships for 2012. These faculty members have been given a course release during the spring 2012 semester or a summer stipend in order to prepare to implement an engaged-learning strategy in one or more classes.
Engaged learning refers to any instructional strategy that encourages students to seek and discover new knowledge by exploring authentic questions and problems. Engaged learning strategies include but are not limited to service learning, problem-based learning, and learning communities.

Any questions about the fellowships can be directed to Fred Sweitzer, assistant provost and dean of faculty development, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860.768.4504.
