Each year, the NTLC invites instructors to apply to become a Wisconsin Teaching Fellow or Scholar (WTFS). Sponsored by the UW System's Office of Professional and Instructional Development (OPID), this award honors both experienced and early-career educators and recognizes their excellence in teaching and research. Candidates must be exceptional teachers who publicly share their expertise and demonstrate leadership.

Selected participants should be familiar with Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) research, since that particular research model provides the basis for yearlong projects that Fellows and Scholars work on. Each participant completes an SoTL project, collaborates with other fellows and scholars on designing projects, and shares research results in public forums.


Wisconsin Teaching Fellow & Scholar

Each UW institution may nominate two to three candidates for the WTFS program. The awardees participate in events throughout the year, including attending Faculty College, a summer institute, and fall and winter seminars. Wisconsin Teaching Fellows and Scholars are expected to serve as leaders and mentors, sharing their project ideas and outcomes in a variety of public forums. For more information, please contact Renee Howarton, NTLC Director.

Chosen participants will receive financial support from UW-Stout and OPID.
