by Jenny Corke

Ideas welcome! The Tang Institute has announced its call for 2017-2018 Tang Institute Faculty Fellowship proposals. Please reach out with your questions and ideas to tanginstitute@andover.edu and complete the online application. The deadline for proposals is Friday, November 18, 2016.

In 2017-2018, there is a focus on growing the following areas through fellows’ projects:

  • Hybrid@Andover: Pilots focused on exploring the possibilities of hybrid and online learning experiences and materials for students at Andover and beyond.
  • Ideas Lab: Faculty-led projects that center on creative approaches to teaching and learning. Efforts could include explorations of pedagogy, curriculum development, the use of new tools or research, and a variety of other initiatives.
  • Learning in the World (LITW): Projects focused on connections between LITW experiences and our regular program, on topics such as global citizenship, cross-cultural collaboration, and experiential learning.

Ideas in various stages of development—including early explorations and concepts, existing efforts that need additional support, and novel projects to incubate and develop—are most welcome. Faculty applicants are also encouraged to consider collaborative or interdisciplinary efforts that involve faculty colleagues, instructional partners, and/or other community members, in addition to students. Please reach out to Caroline Nolan, Eric Roland, and Sarah Bakanosky at tanginstitute@andover.edu in advance of finalizing your proposal if you would like to talk through your idea or have questions about the process. New Institute Fellows will be notified in mid-to-late January 2017.
