The purpose of the Teaching Scholars Fellowship is to facilitate participants’ formation and development as (a) health professions educators who are knowledgeable, purposeful, and skilled in teaching, learning, educational assessment, and educational scholarship and (b) educational experts and leaders within their own departments and the broader Augusta University (AU) community.
Each week, a content expert from AU is invited to facilitate a discussion on a given educational topic. The topics are grouped as: 1) Teaching and Learning, 2) Assessment and Curriculum, 3) Scholarship and Research, and 4) Career Development. The 2020 course syllabus including session topics can be viewed here.
If more interested in developing your health sciences educational research knowledge and skills, consider applying for the EII's Educational Research Fellowship.
The next cohort of teaching fellows will be in 2022. The application will be due in September 2021.
Faculty applicants negotiate with their department to have release time to attend weekly training sessions and to develop a project. The department financially supports this release time.
Priority for fellowship is given to MCG faculty applicants. However, the best cohorts for the fellowship have included fellows from a variety of backgrounds, including faculty from various health sciences colleges and clerkship coordinators. Faculty from Summerville campus who have an interest in health sciences-related education would be a welcome addition to the group.
Call for application: July 1
Applications due: September 1
Start fellowship: First week in February
