Faculty Development Fellows

The Learning Teaching Center (LTC) Faculty Development Fellows for Experiential Learning (EL) work with the Director of Experiential Learning, the Advisory Group, and the LTC Leadership Team to build faculty communities of practice around topics such as EL reflection, assessment, and advising. Using their extensive knowledge, expertise, and creativity, as well as a unique transdisciplinary approach, the fellows engage University of Dayton faculty in the development of high-impact EL opportunities for students.

LTC Faculty Fellows are full-time faculty with a strong desire to promote learning and teaching across campus. Committed to the principles and goals of servant leadership, Faculty Fellows meet regularly with the LTC Leadership Team and receive logistical and administrative support for the services and programs they create and/or deliver. LTC Faculty Fellows may also serve on relevant university committees.
