General Education Fellows Program
he campus-wide General Education Fellows Program is designed to provide a forum for instructors in the University’s robust General Education program to discuss the special demands of teaching such classes (e.g. writing in large lectures) and to share information and experiences in order to better understand the purpose and benefits of these classes.
As part of this larger initiative, the Provost’s office, the Center for Teaching, OIT Academic Computing, UMass Amherst Libraries, the Office of Academic Planning and Assessment and Continuing and Professional Education in consultation with the General Education Task Force are co-sponsoring a fellowship program. In this its second year, the program will focus on the use of instructional technologies to enhance college writing. The program may include up to ten fellows who will receive a stipend of $1000.00, a high-performance Tablet PC or Mac laptop computer and related software. The fellowship is a one-year commitment which will begin in Summer 2009.
