Rules and Regulations




PURPOSE

Join colleagues interested in teaching pedagogy, practical application, and the scholarship of teaching and learning from a variety of academic settings in a half-day workshop designed to expose the inner workings of course design, student engagement, meaningful learning, and effective assessment.  Participants will craft a unique workshop experience from a selection of roundtable discussions best suited to their individual interests and needs.  Roundtable topics include, but are not limited to, backward design, community based learning, assessment tools beyond the exam, and working with technology in the classroom.  Time will be allocated for networking with colleagues interested in sharing ideas, gaining support, and building collaboration, so participants are encouraged to bring business cards to share.  The workshop will conclude with a session on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

This workshop will benefit those working within a range of settings, including instructors from community colleges and small liberal arts institutions, as well as early career faculty and graduate students.

Each event is intended to advance the quality of teaching in the discipline of sociology.

COMMITMENT
If selected as an AKD Fellow, you will be expected to develop a new pedagogical technique, course, or curricular innovation inspired by the workshop and to provide AKD with a progress report on your work after the workshop is completed.  We will follow up with you periodically (three months, six months, nine months, etc.) to see how you are doing and if there is anything we or the program organizers and facilitators can do to help.

ELIGIBILITY
All sociologists are encouraged to apply for the AKD Fellowship. It is part of AKD’s purpose and mission to serve segments of the sociology community that are currently under-served.  To that end, the  selection committee will consider institutional affiliation at community colleges, HBCU’s, HIS’s, and tribal colleges as a positive factor when assessing applications for the AKD fellowships. Graduate students will also be highly considered.


AMOUNT OF AVAILABLE FUNDING
Alpha Kappa Delta will provide up to $500 to five recipients for each event to cover travel expenses, including hotel stay, meals, registration, and other expenses.
