Gaultier Community-Engaged Teaching Fellowship 2020-2021 Application

  • 12:00 AM to 5:00 PM

The Gaultier Community-Engaged Teaching Fellowship, sponsored by the Center for CETR, enables faculty members to share successful community-engaged teaching strategies, assist emerging community-engaged teachers, and disseminate his or her promising practices in the form of an academic product. Through the Gaultier Fellowship, CETR hopes to contribute to future generations of community-engaged teachers by:

  • Establishing cohorts of Master Teachers with expertise in particular facets of community-engaged teaching
  • Advancing a form of mentorship between master and emerging community-engaged teachers
  • Enhancing the quality of community-engaged learning experiences for Duquesne undergraduates.

Each year, a theme is established within the call for applications that reflect an aspect of community-engaged teaching that needs to be strengthened at Duquesne. Faculty who have found strategies to address the challenges represented in the theme are encouraged to apply. By establishing a theme for each cohort, we are able to create a critical mass of Master Teachers who have a vehicle to share much-needed expertise in important aspects of community-engaged teaching.

2020-2021 Theme: Transformation

Community-engaged teaching expands pedagogical boundaries and provides opportunities for participant development and transformation. Duquesne's community-engaged learning model emphasizes rigorous learning, reflection, and assessment, with a goal of stakeholder transformation. While student transformation has long been considered an outcome of impactful community-engaged learning, we invite applicants for our 2020-2021 Gaultier Teaching Fellowship to examine the theme of transformation more broadly. What types of transformation have you seen through your community engagement experiences that have indicated transformation at the individual, organizational, or social level(s)? How can Duquesne define and understand transformation in the context of community-engaged teaching? CETR also invites applications utilizing a critical perspective to address the limitations of community-engaged learning as it relates to transformation.

Applications will be accepted on or before April 1, 2020. If you have any questions, please contact us at cetr@duq.edu or 412.396.5893.
