Faculty Fellows Program

University of Idaho

The Doceo Center Faculty Fellows Program seeks to recognize the expertise and innovations of leading University of Idaho faculty for integrating technology into their teaching, outreach, and research. Through this program, University of Idaho faculty members may apply to be recognized as a Doceo Center Faculty Fellow and receive a general-purpose technology device (e.g., iPad, iPad Mini, Chromebook, Android tablet, digital voice recorder), a subject-specific technology device (e.g., digital microscope), or software (e.g., Adobe Creative Suite) to support their teaching, outreach, and research. Ten awards shall be given each semester; no more than one per faculty member per semester.

Upon receipt of the technology device or software, Faculty Fellows will be expected to contribute to the Doceo Center website by writing one or more blog posts on the topic of technology integration within their area of expertise (e.g., science education, math education, teacher preparation, special education, elementary literacy). Each blog post should be between 800 and 1200 words in length and should either focus on specific applications or innovative practices for using the provided device (or another technology) for K-12 teaching and learning and/or teacher preparation. The number of such blog posts required by Faculty Fellows will be generally equivalent to one per hundred dollar cost of the device (i.e., a $400 device would require four blog posts). For determining this, device cost will be rounded to the nearest hundred.

All devices provided to Faculty Fellows will be treated like other departmental devices and will remain the property of the College of Education.

The Faculty Fellows Program is open to all faculty from all colleges: full-time, part-time, tenure-track, non-tenure track, etc.

For more information on requirements of fellows regarding blog posts, please consult the blog post guidelines or contact Dr. Royce Kimmons.

Note: Windows and Mac laptops are generally not available through the Doceo Center Faculty Fellows Program, and cost limits are generally $1,000.
