In the Graduate Remote Instruction (GRI) Innovation Fellows program, graduate students will work to develop high-quality approaches for remote instruction for spring and summer 2021 courses. The program is intended for graduate students teaching discussion sections or stand-alone courses (e.g., Reading & Composition, studios, or foreign languages), and those GSIs who are assisting a faculty member in revising a course to be taught remotely in the spring or summer 2021.
GRI Innovation Fellows will be expected to devote approximately 70 hours to the program from December 7, 2020 to January 15, 2021. This includes a one-week intensive seminar with synchronous and asynchronous components (December 7-11, 2020) on designing courses to enhance student learning in a remote environment. From December 14, 2020 to January 15, 2021, Fellows will work independently on the creation of course materials (in consultation with the Instructor of Record, as appropriate) and self-guided training. Each GRI Fellow will receive a stipend of $2,000.
