CETL Faculty Fellowships

We are seeking five faculty fellows who will work closely with CETL staff to connect faculty members across the College with best practices for teaching and learning around a theme. Themes can be proposed by the applicants (suggested themes include: Active Learning, Community Engaged Learning, Inclusive Pedagogy, Artificial Intelligence, Assessment, etc.) The fellowship will begin December 1, 2023 and end December 1, 2024.

CETL faculty fellows will author and curate evidence-based faculty resources on the CETL website in their chosen theme, with each fellow identified as the guide on the topic. The fellows cohort will meet once every other month to coordinate efforts and engage with one another. In addition, the faculty fellows will participate in a variety of projects based on individual expertise and interest. For example, this could include one or more of the following projects:

  • Facilitating an in-person workshop for the TCNJ Teaching and Learning Summit in February, 2024
  • Creating online modules for faculty professional development
  • Writing and submitting a paper to SoTL publication
  • Presenting at a SoTL conference
  • Leading a Learning Community
  • Other proposed contributions (let us know in your application)


All faculty members and librarians who are full time (tenured, tenure-track, multi-year clinical instructors, multi-year lecturers) are eligible. 5 faculty fellows will be appointed.


Faculty Fellows may choose to receive a $5,000 stipend or $5,000 in professional expense funds. Professional expense funds may be used to support conference participation/travel, technology/software purchases, student assistants, scholarly/academic expenses, and/or professional memberships. Stipends will be paid upon completion of the academic year. For those choosing professional expenses funds, recipients must submit all reimbursement receipts no later than January 1 of the academic year following their fellowship (e.g., by January 1, 2025 for an AY 23-24 monetary award).

The call for applications closes on November 1, 2023 at 11:59 PM. Recipients are determined by a subcommittee of the Teaching and Learning Council, a representative group of faculty and librarians.
