The Tang Institute seeks fellowship proposals that support student learning at Andover and beyond; deadline is Nov. 20.
by Tang Institute

The Tang Institute at Andover is calling for 2021–2022 fellowship proposals that focus on supporting student learning at Phillips Academy and within the broader educational landscape. In 2021–2022, the Institute encourages project proposals with a particular emphasis on one or a combination of the following emerging areas of education: equity and inclusion, instructional coaching, reimagining pedagogy, and interdisciplinary learning. Creative interpretations of these themes and ideas in other areas of teaching and learning are most welcome. Andover faculty members may submit proposals as interdisciplinary teams or as individuals with plans to collaborate in specific areas.

The deadline for proposals is Friday, November 20, 2020.

Areas of Focus

We welcome proposals from Andover faculty members for projects in all areas of teaching and learning. In 2021-22, we are particularly eager to continue our work in these areas:

Reimagining Pedagogy
Fellows in this track will continue to explore innovative approaches to teaching and learning. Projects that span more than one department will work closely with the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies.

Interdisciplinary

We seek collaborations that will bring together two (or more) academic departments. We are particularly interested in teachers who are interested in bringing interdisciplinary perspectives into core courses (taken earlier in the academic program by a large number of students) as opposed to upper-level electives.

Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racist Education

This track is open to projects that continue to advance the work of equity and inclusion on campus. Projects with a curricular focus will likely work closely with the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies.

Instructional Coaching

Individuals in this track will be asked to do several days of professional learning at a conference over the summer. They will mentor 2–3 teachers weekly in a collaborative, non-evaluative manner during the term in which they receive their course reduction.
