Diversity and Technology Fellows

Diversity Fellows are graduate student TOs who want to explore issues of diversity as they relate to the teaching of composition. During their meetings, Diversity Fellows  discuss relevant scholarship on the issues of diversity and pedagogy, identify areas in the Englwrit 111 or 112 curricula where discussion of diversity would be helpful, and develop an activity or approach related to diversity and to share this with fellow writing TOs.

Technology Fellows, or “Tech Fellows,” are graduate student TOs in the Writing Program who engage with questions of teaching writing with technology, both theoretically and practically, through reading, discussion, and hands-on play with technologies.Participation is open to any graduate instructor in the Writing Program regardless of technology experience. In fact, the Tech Fellows program provides a great opportunity for those less familiar with technology to explore the various ways technology can be incorporated into the writing classroom.

Fellows participate in meetings led by the Technology Coordinator during the spring semester.  A call for applications will go out in the fall semester; a small stipend accompanies this fellowship.
