University Teaching & Learning Project

2024 – 2025 call for applications now open:

STLI invites applications for the 2024-2025 University Teaching & Learning Projects (UTLP). These collaborative investigations will span the academic year and explore innovative teaching and learning approaches contributing to the future of education at William & Mary.

  • Generative AI in higher education UTLP. This University Teaching & Learning Project (ULTP) will expand on last year’s exploration of the state and impact of Generative AI on higher education. This year, this UTLP group will focus on providing our fellow instructors with actionable resources to inform the use (or avoid the use) of Generative AI in the area of teaching and learning at W&M. We are looking for faculty committed to developing Generative AI-related assignments, learning activities, best-practice guides for specific disciplines or action research.
  • Instructor peer observation UTLP. This group will explore, analyze, and provide recommendations on peer observation practices for W&M instructors. UTLP participants will evaluate observation protocols as they observe and are observed by peers. We seek those committed to strengths-based descriptive feedback to promote a positive culture of continuous instructional growth through this new peer observation program.

If selected as a UTLP team member, you will receive a $750 stipend. However, due to the time commitment of these projects, you can only be selected to participate in one UTLP during the 2024/2025 academic year.

Application Deadline August 22, 2024 at 5:00 pm (EST)
