Digital Champions Fellowships

Digital Champion Fellowships are designed to support faculty as they explore the pedagogical applications of digital technologies. Digital Champion Fellowships are awarded to faculty who seek assistance incorporating innovative models of instruction in their courses. No prior experience with digital technologies is necessary.

This year’s Digital Champion Fellowships have been awarded to faculty committed to working with the CII to complete projects connected to the following initiatives:

  • Lowering textbook costs through the use of Open Educational Resources (OER)
  • Using or developing adaptive e-courseware to improve student outcomes
  • Developing fully online courses
