Pedagogical Innovation Fellows Program

 The Pedagogical Innovation Fellows Program recruits a new cohort of fellows each year to collaborate with DFI to redesign an aspect of a course through the thoughtful integration and design of digital media and technologies. The program aims to support faculty  to explore new uses of digital technologies, tools, platforms, and  practices in their pedagogies.

The Goal

The program aims to provide consultation, development, and design support in the areas of instructional design, media production, learning technologies, and learning spaces for faculty to develop and implement a pedagogical innovation in their courses.

How it works

Each Fellow partners with one of our instructional design and/or learning technology experts to collaboratively design, develop, implement, and evaluate the innovation over the course of one semester.
