Teaching Innovation Fellowships support the development of new courses or the substantial redesign of existing courses, with the goals of increasing student success and energizing student engagement with the humanities and humanistic perspectives. This program will provide faculty with resources to create on-campus or hybrid courses that explore new areas of study or offer students new and unique learning opportunities. Note: faculty interested in creating online courses or incorporating tech into existing courses should consult OSU’s Ecampus or the Center for Teaching and Learning.
