Request a Consultation: Faculty Fellows for Technology-Enhanced Teaching

Please note: Our Faculty Fellows are here to assist you with specific needs related to online teaching. If you have questions regarding other areas of teaching, please visit our Request A Consultation with our faculty developer team. 

Recognizing that many classes this fall semester will need to be delivered using technology, thirty faculty fellows for technology-enhanced teaching who are experienced and skilled with using technology have been recruited from across campus to provide disciplinary-specific assistance to their colleagues who are developing online, hybrid, or technology-enhanced courses for the fall semester. The cohort is led by Dr. Mark Collins, distinguished lecturer and director of Technology-Enhanced Education in the Haslam College of Business. We thank him for leading this exciting opportunity.

You can schedule your consultation based on academic area or needed online speciality. For instance, if you are in the College of Arts and Sciences but require assistance in an online speciality with a Faculty Fellow housed in Tickle College of Engineering, you are more than welcome to schedule outside of your academic area. We’ve organized the Faculty Fellows below based on college below.

For Virtual Vol Bootcamp participants: If you wish to receive your stipend in a particular month, you must complete all requirements before the end-of-business on the date of the 8th of that same month.
