Apply to be a McDougal Teaching Fellow in the Poorvu Center

Are you interested in being a 2022-23 McDougal Graduate Teaching Fellow in the Poorvu Center?

Applications to be a McDougal Graduate Teaching Fellow in the Poorvu Center are due March 31.

Please email the following materials to Suzanne Young. Place all documentation into a single pdf file and include your name and contact information.

  1. A listing of your college teaching experience, both formal and informal, to date
  2. A brief (250 word max.) self-assessment of your teaching strengths, strategies, and style
  3. A representative sample of your teaching evaluations (we suggest the most recent)
  4. A description of the teaching development activities (including Poorvu Center workshops and events) in which you have participated.
  5. In addition to providing our on-going programs, Poorvu Center fellows develop new workshops and resources for teaching fellows. These initiatives are often aimed at specific departments, disciplines, or topics. Please identify one aspect of Teaching Fellow preparation that you feel needs attention and describe a program or resource that you might develop to address it. Your proposal may include a current program offered by the Poorvu Center that needs revision or redirection. (250 words max.)

We will accept additional documents in support of your teaching – a faculty letter, a peer observation report, a Poorvu Center consultation report, etc. – but these are not required. Please include any additional documents in your application packet.
