Faculty Fellows Program
The Global Lab is delighted to invite applications for the Global Fellows Program for academic year 2020-21. The program allows WPI faculty (NTT or TT) to spend a term in residence at the Global Lab in the Foisie Innovation Studio, completing a research or creative project that advances the goals of the Lab and the fellow’s own professional goals as they relate to global engagement.
There are no limits to the shapes of these projects. We invite innovative thinking around the themes about which you are most passionate.
Keep an office space in the Foisie Innovation Studio for the term and engage in the collaborative activities in the Foisie building
We are especially interested in projects that do one or more of the following
that are of importance to people and communities around the world, including within Worcester and at WPI.
to expand the capacities of the WPI community to engage meaningfully with stakeholders, local and global. Examples include projects that support innovative ID2050 teaching, off-site project advising or global partnership building.
Whether through a peer-reviewed publication, a performance piece, a new media technology, a pedagogical tool or anything in between, could the project’s products (and process/methods) help advance thinking about how academic work is communicated and disseminated?
Does the project have a breadth of potential connection points (thematic, methodological, programmatic, etc.) such that others could readily see the relevance of the project to their own work?
If you are interested in applying for a fellowship term, please complete the attached expression of interest by October 21, 2019. Finalists will be contacted to discuss their project ideas further.
We look forward to hearing from you, and to engaging with many of you at the Global Lab!
