Approved Applied Learning 2018-2019 Fellowship Cohort
We are pleased to announce the creation of a new faculty fellowship program created by the SUNY Performance Improvement Funds (PIF) grant received by Buffalo State to assist in our efforts to centralize and support approved applied learning (AAL) on campus. Applied learning refers to an educational approach whereby students learn by engaging in direct application of skills, theories, and models. To be “approved,” the activity or course must meet the five criteria as defined by SUNY (PDF, 25 KB).
Applications are now being accepted for the 2018–2019 Approved Applied Learning Faculty Fellowship cohort. Full-time and part-time faculty members are encouraged to apply.
Faculty fellows will receive $750 for the following responsibilities:
- Completing a two-day miniconference on May 31 and June 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
- Completing the AAL project or activity outline (content and assessment) and uploading it to the AAL website
- Participating in at least two follow-up meetings during fall 2018
- Being an active participant in cohort activities
Participants will also receive an additional $250 for implementing the AAL activity in either the fall 2018 or spring 2019 semester.
