Course Development Seminars in Teaching Excellence

Published: May 13, 2021

The Excellence in Pedagogy and Innovative Classrooms Program is pleased to announce a new grant opportunity to promote innovative and inclusive undergraduate teaching in the following interdisciplinary fields within the Humanities: Health & Medical, Environmental, Digital, and Urban Humanities.

Building upon the foundational work of the Mellon-EPIC Fellows from the Collaborative Humanities Track Seminars in Teaching Excellence (STE), the new EPIC Course Development STE will bring together Humanities faculty and graduate students to develop undergraduate courses in these four fields. Participants will work collaboratively across disciplines and levels of experience to workshop and produce syllabi for fully designed, ready-to-teach courses.

Each Course Development STE comprises four faculty members and four graduate students who will meet as a cohort at least five times over the course of a quarter. The STE schedule is as follows:

  • Fall 2021 Quarter: Health & Medical Humanities
  • Winter 2022 Quarter: Environmental Humanities
  • Spring 2022 Quarter: Digital Humanities
  • Fall 2022 Quarter: Urban Humanities

The application is now open for 2021-2022 Course Design STE.
The application for the Urban Humanities STE will be available Spring 2022.

Deadline for applications has been extended to: June 23, 2021 by 5:00 PM PDT.
