CTL Fellows

The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce our new CTL Fellowships. These fellowships provide Boise State faculty with opportunities to explore and experiment with pedagogical issues and strategies in community with other instructors and with the support of CTL staff.

Each CTL Fellow will create and deliver programming and resources related to an area of individual interest and demonstrated need at Boise State. The CTL encourages prospective fellows to think broadly and creatively about emerging models of educational development.

While the CTL does not have an ideal fellowship proposal in mind, we especially welcome projects related to these areas of need:

  • Innovative and effective ways to support new faculty
  • Cultivating a sustainable culture of mentoring for faculty at every stage of their careers
  • Expanding the adoption and adaptation of OER and affordable learning materials
  • Exploring ways for faculty to practice UDL and make their course materials accessible

Key details

Faculty will be expected to work on their projects 30 hours per semester, plus attend faculty fellow meetings (1 hour/month).

Faculty may propose a fellowship length of one year or two, though renewal for the second year is at the CTL’s discretion, based on an evaluation of the fellow’s activity in year 1 and in light of any unexpected changes to the CTL’s budget.


  • $3,000/year, paid as either a stipend (on overload) or deposited into a fellow’s departmental account as professional development funds
  • Budget for materials or other expenses: up to $500/year (include a budget with your proposal)
  • If the fellow desires, shared office space in the CTL’s offices in Riverfront Hall


By the end of the fellowship period, fellows must have:

  • Engaged with other faculty in ways that meaningfully advance teaching, learning, faculty community, and/or the sustainability of faculty labor.
  • Delivered thoughtful services, programming, materials, or other faculty development.
    • The CTL expects all faculty- or student-facing materials to be shared under any of the Creative Commons licenses that require attribution and allow for remixing.
    • All materials should be archived with the CTL.
  • Evaluated the programming and services they provided (by the end of each academic year).
  • Documented all of the above, in ways that are mutually agreed upon by the fellow and the CTL.

To apply

The fellowship is open to faculty of any career track (adjunct, lecturer, tenure-line, etc.) who will have been teaching at Boise State for one year or more at the time the fellowship begins.

The CTL will welcome as many as five faculty fellows in the 2023-2024 academic year. Interested faculty may submit proposals through March 20, 2023.
