The Center for Teaching and Learning is proud to announce the Teaching and Learning @ Colby Fellows Program. The TAL@C Fellows program will immerse faculty and student teams in a series of guided conversations and workshops to encourage the successful implementation of active learning strategies in traditionally lecture-based courses.

TAL@C Faculty Fellows will receive a $2500 stipend to support the redesign or design of a course that they will teach during the 2020 spring term. Each Faculty Fellow will select 1-2 student learning assistants to partner with them on the design and implementation of active learning strategies that promote inclusive learning experiences. Student learning assistants will be paid hourly (~5 hours/week), by the CTL, for contributions to the pedagogical design and implementation of active learning strategies. Faculty stipends will be paid at the end of the fall term.
