Graduate Fellowship in Instructional Design

Graduate students are dedicated to their disciplines, their studies, their research and writing. A semester-long fellowship with the eLearning Design Team allows these dedicated students to turn their attention to teaching.

With support from instructional designers, graduate fellows from across academic disciplines identify barriers to undergraduate learning at UAF and, over the course of one semester, develop creative, technology-based responses. Graduate fellows apply to the program with a project proposal, which they revise and pursue with support from instructional designers. Over the course of their fellowship, they also contribute to ongoing design team projects, including the opportunity to lead workshops and submit to our publications. Fellows are project managers, collaborators, and learners all at once.

The graduate fellowship is a one-semester opportunity, which includes:

  • Stipend, tuition waiver, and health insurance
  • Work space @ eLearning on the UAF main campus
  • 20 hours/week required
  • Access to paid software programs and UAF eLearning’s equipment loan library
  • Participation in ongoing eLearning and Design Team programs and projects
