Digital Literacy Curricular Development Fellowships

The Carolina Digital Humanities Initiative is partnering with the Center for Faculty Excellence, the University Writing Program, Information Technology Services, and the University Libraries to solicit proposals for Digital Literacy Curricular Development Fellowships. These fellowships will support graduate students wishing to expand their professional profiles through developing educational materials and programming to promote digital literacy.

These fellowships provide $500 in funding to graduate students wishing to integrate digital literacy activities into their teaching. These activities might range from assignments that further data literacy among students to activities that engage the public through digital means to projects that feature multimedia composing.

Expectations: Recipients will plan, conduct, and capture the results of a significant digital assignment. Recipients will deliver lesson plans and an assignment prompt; collections of resources to support the assignment; samples of student work representing the results of the assignment (instructors will identify samples and coordinate the public sharing of projects with willing students); and a narrative about the assignment and resulting projects. Recipients will deliver these materials no later than May 19th, 2017.

Submit a statement of interest and a current CV to Malina Chavez (malina@unc.edu) with a copy to Daniel Anderson (iamdan@unc.edu) no later than 11:59PM on February 24th, 2017. The statement of interest should be no more than two single-spaced pages and include plans for potential assignments and support materials to be developed. For questions related to the proposal process, contact Malina Chavez (malina@unc.edu).
