About the CIL Faculty Fellows Program (FFP)
The Center for Innovative Learning (CIL) is committed to the support and development of LAU’s faculty towards excellence and innovation. The purpose of the CIL is to bring together colleagues from different schools to promote excellence in teaching, learning and assessment through technologies and high-impact pedagogies.
This Program is at the core of the Center. It offers faculty members the opportunity to enhance their teaching and be active members of the LAU teaching community. The FFP is a yearly, structured 4-week program, normally held in summer, for faculty members interested in working on one or more of the following subjects:
- Designing a new course
- Redesigning an existing course
- Exploring new active learning strategies
- Applying state-of-the-art disciplinary research into teaching
- Using technology in the teaching process
A call for proposals is sent to faculty every year that provides details on the application process, including application form and deadline. As a general rule, interested faculty members will be requested to submit an updated CV and a proposal, normally in May, according to the communicated template (sample: template for the Summer & Fall 2020 FFP) . The documents are electronically submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org, with a copy to the school dean and department chairperson.
