WTF / WTS Program Details
This program was awarded the prestigious 2005 TIAA-CREF Theodore M. Hesburgh Certificate of Excellence for the development of innovative and diverse communities of teacher-scholars across the UW System.
The Wisconsin Teaching Fellows group will include outstanding early-career, untenured faculty and teaching academic staff. The Wisconsin Teaching Scholars group will include outstanding tenured faculty and experienced academic staff. Candidates must be exceptional teachers who publicly share their expertise and demonstrate leadership. Participants in the WTFS Program should be familiar with Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) research. Each participant undertakes a significant SoTL project, records the project’s progress on an electronic poster, and disseminates the results in public forums. Teaching Fellows and Scholars are expected to serve as leaders and mentors in campus and UW System SoTL work.
Each UW Institution may name two participants to the 2013-14 WTFS Program. Each participant will receive $4,000 in financial support from their institution and a $500 S&E grant from OPID.
