The Lilly Teaching Fellows program, now inviting applicants for its 23rd cohort, is intended to advance the University’s continuing efforts to support excellence in teaching and learning. The Program provides a cohort of six-seven pre-tenure faculty in the tenure systems, assistant professors in the Health Programs system, and librarians or NSCL Faculty with continuing appointments, with an opportunity to engage in a year-long exploration of the robust scholarship on effective practices in University teaching. The Lilly Fellows Program is designed to support Fellows who will become future faculty leaders and models for their peers as well as to inspire a broad range of faculty at all ranks to pursue excellence in teaching. Fellows participate in monthly seminars facilitated by Deborah DeZure, Assistant Provost for Faculty and Organizational Development, and produce an individual research project on their teaching with support of a faculty mentor. The program is supported by matching grants from F&OD and the Fellows’ departments.
Six MSU Lilly Teaching Fellows were selected for the 2012-2013 academic year. You can read about this year's Lilly Fellows on the Current Fellows page. A hallmark of the Program is the pairing of Lilly Fellows with experienced faculty mentors, chosen by the Fellows either from within their departments or schools or outside their disciplinary areas. Lilly Fellows will participate in monthly cohort meetings and attend off-campus retreats and relevant Lilly Seminars. Each Fellow will be responsible for a personal teaching and/or Scholarship of Teaching and Learning development project during the Fellowship year.
To facilitate the participation of faculty members selected as Lilly Fellows, each participating department/school will be given an allocation of approximately $7,000 to be used for release time and/or for equivalent department/school support in recognition of the assignment. The chair of the primary academic unit is expected to match the $7000 in support for the Fellowship award provided by the Office of the Provost. The form of this support should be determined collaboratively between the primary chairperson and the Fellow. Mentors will also receive $100 to be used for books, and supplies.
Individuals who are assistant professors on a probationary status in the tenure and Health Programs systems, assistant or associate professors in the College of Law tenure system, or librarians or NSCL faculty with appointments, beyond the first year of appointment, or completing the first year of appointment at the time of application, are eligible to apply for the Lilly Teaching Fellows Program.
Applications to the Program must include endorsements from department/school chairs or directors and college deans. The chairperson’s/director’s letter of support and/or signature on the application signifies that the Fellow’s project will advance the mission and goals of the academic unit. NEW LAST YEAR, the application requires a preliminary proposal for how the funds will be used (see Proposed Budget Form, last page of application). The proposal can be amended later to reflect changes in the proposed project or identification of new relevant opportunities, such as conference attendance.
Application: Application forms will be emailed to all eligible faculty members in November 2012. Applications can also be downloaded here: 2013-14 Lilly Teaching Fellowship Application Form.
