Faculty Transformation Fellowships:
The Faculty Transformation Fellowship Program focused on the improvement of teaching and learning. The program provided selected faculty with a laptop, a stipend, and comprehensive support from the FDC to support their proposed projects; including the extension of appropriate academic technology into their teaching and learning activities. This program, together with the University’s Institute for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, served as a catalyst for change and for quality improvement in student learning outcomes. This project assisted faculty in transforming their courses, improved learning, and integrated more instructional technology into their courses.
The fellowship program provided funding for 40 Webster faculty over a three year time period.
