CETL Visiting Scholar Program

Applications are now being received for the Centre for Enhanced Teaching & Learning Visiting Scholar Program. Ideal for those planning a sabbatical, the visiting scholar program is for faculty members who wish to work on projects that would benefit from close collaboration with members of the CETL staff.

Eligibility Criteria:

The CETL visiting scholar program is open to full time UNB faculty members who have been teaching for at least five years and wish to pursue a teaching & learning oriented project. In most cases the visiting scholar will be situated in the CETL offices to facilitate their work and collaborations. Note that there is no pay or stipend associated with this appointment.

Examples of types of projects that would qualify:

  • Working on a course redesign to include more active engagement strategies and exercises (collaboration with Teaching & Learning Services, mainly Bev Bramble and the TLS coordinator)
  • Working toward a technology-enabled flipped classroom approach (collaboration with Media Services’ Jeff Mundee and Nancy Wood, and with TLS’ Emily Clark)
  • Working on a project related to the redesign of a learning space (collaboration with Classroom Services)
  • Working on a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning project

Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis, and our capacity is limited to 2 concurrent Visiting Scholars.
