The Queens College Library and the Center for Teaching and Learning are pleased to invite applications to the Digital Literacy Faculty Fellowship, a competitive fellowship focused on pedagogical praxis that carries a $3,000 stipend. Queens College recognizes that a major barrier to the use of open educational resources (OER) and other tools of open pedagogy is the challenge of teaching, reading, thinking and communicating in the digital environment. Therefore, we are introducing this fellowship program, funded by this year’s OLS OER grant, to support digital literacy through open educational resources.

Queens College Faculty chosen to participate in this competitive fellowship program are eligible to receive $3,000 in compensation.* Faculty fellows commit to:

  • Actively participating in a semester-long seminar on digital scholarship and open pedagogy, including eight in-person workshops or discussion groups ;
  • Working with library faculty and OER experts to develop courses and materials that adhere to accepted review standards;
  • Teaching at least one zero-textbook-cost course incorporating digital literacy materials by fall 2019;
  • Writing a brief end-of-program narrative;
  • Making course materials openly available through a Queens College digital repository.

* Subject to workload restrictions. See the Adjunct Workload Policy for more information.

Application deadline is November 5, 2018.
