Team-Teaching Stipends — Applicant

  • Application Deadline: January 29, 2018
    This form should be completed by a faculty member applicant.


    This program aims to foster creative, dynamic, and innovative teaching across humanistic disciplines, in the interest of generating new courses and pedagogies. The Center will consider proposals from two faculty members with different areas of expertise in one department; preference is given to proposals which bring together colleagues and, importantly, students, from different departments, disciplines, and schools.

    Existing courses may be used for the team-taught initiative, or new courses may be proposed, either to be cross-listed in different departments and/or schools. Funded courses will be offered in spring or fall of the following year. Courses must be open for credit to students in both faculty members’ units of appointment.

    Eligibility

    All full-time faculty in the humanities and arts at NYU.

    Program Requirements

    Course Load. Faculty members must consult with their department chairs regarding their intent to apply. It is expected that the proposed course will be offered during spring or fall of the following year, and will count as one full course toward their normal teaching load for that semester. Chairs should write a brief letter in support of the proposal and indicate their departments’ willingness to assign the faculty members in this manner during that semester.

    Reporting
    Each team will be asked to provide a written assessment of their experience no later than two months following the end of the semester during which the course was taught. Stipend recipients may also be invited to present their findings during one of the weekly lunch meetings of the NYU Center for the Humanities Fellows.

    Funding

    The total award amount is $4,000:

    • $2,000 is made available for course development during the summer preceding the grant year. Funds may be spent on any reasonable expense that is directly related to the course, such as: the purchase of materials (books, journals, videos, cd’s, etc.), xeroxing fees, website development, and student researcher salary and fringe. The latter expenditure is encouraged.
    • $2,000 is reserved for course implementation (field trips, guest speakers, technology services, etc.).

    Selection Criteria & Review Process

    Successful proposals will both draw on and reflect the disciplinary and research interests of the two faculty members and address either a wide-ranging problem in the humanities or the interface between humanistic and artistic or cultural inquiry.

    Stipends will be awarded by the NYU Center for the Humanities Advisory Board, composed of senior faculty and administrators appointed by the Provost, based on review of the applications.
