The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) in the School of Professional Studies celebrates its 25th year in promoting teaching excellence and the creation of exceptional learning experiences by championing an effective and innovative teaching culture across our campus.

With the rapid evolution of Generative AI pedagogy and tools, the CTL is seeking a Faculty Fellow on Generative AI to begin service in Spring 2024.

Tenured faculty members who specialize in applying generative AI in teaching and learning, and are willing to serve in a leadership role to advance the institution’s AI initiatives are invited to apply for the fellowship program.


The faculty fellow will collaborate with the Teaching and Learning Innovation team to spearhead, co-lead, or support teaching innovation with Generative AI on our campus through a variety of initiatives such as:

This could include helping create and/or participating in various kinds of faculty development programming such as campus working groups, faculty affitinity groups, peer mentoring, knowledge dissemination activities, etc.
