APPLICATION

 

The application period is
October 1 – November 30, 2018.

 

Applications will undergo a blind review to make recommendation for acceptance. Applicants will be notified in February 2019. Applicants selected for the program will need to confirm acceptance of the fellowship appointment by the deadline given in the appointment letter.

 

Six Research Fellows will participate in the AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Associate Program.

Eligibility: Mathematics faculty at two-year colleges and associate degree granting institutions are invited to apply for the AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program. Eligible participants will not be enrolled in a research-orientated graduate program nor hold a simultaneous SoTL fellowship through their or another institution during their time as an AMATYC Project SLOPE Fellow. Fellows must maintain active AMATYC membership throughout the duration of the program and attend all Project SLOPE events. The program is open to US Residents. Non-US Residents are invited to apply, but cannot receive funding for travel nor stipend support through Project SLOPE if selected for the program.

 

Prior SoTL or classroom research experience is NOT required to participate in in the AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program. Project SLOPE welcomes applications of all levels of research experience. Eligible participants will not be enrolled in a research-orientated graduate program nor hold a simultaneous SoTL fellowship through another institution during their time as an AMATYC Project SLOPE Fellow.

 

Institutional Support and Commitment: Assurance of institutional support is of critical importance to the success of the AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program. A strong letter of institutional support and commitment is required for acceptance into the program. Applicants should connect with their college administration and leadership, sharing the information in the Institutional Commitment page prior to applying to program to ensure this commitment.

 

Reflective Statements: Applicants will write three statements as part of the application to the AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program. Each statement is limited in length to 150 words. These statements are designed for you to engage in reflection on the teaching and learning that occur in your classroom and your interest in collaborative inquiry relating to your experiences and curiosity about teaching and learning mathematics. Applicants are encouraged to prepare the responses prior to completing their application and then copy and paste the responses into the application.

 

Prompt 1:

Describe a college teaching experience that has raised some questions in your mind about teaching and learning in mathematics. This experience may have been a point of frustration, a problem, or a surprising insight.

 

Prompt 2:
Prompted by the experience you just described, what aspect(s) of student mathematical thinking, learning, or motivation do you wish you had a better understanding of? Write two (or three) questions you might be interested in investigating as a Project SLOPE Research Fellow that would help you gain a better understanding.

 

Prompt 3:
The AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows will be a collaborative space in which faculty investigate questions of teaching and learning together. What do you see as the value of collaboration when investigating student learning in order to improve mathematics teaching and learning?

 

Statement of Inclusion: The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) respects the contributions that all individuals can make within the organization, the profession and as mathematics students.  AMATYC is committed to promoting equal opportunities in membership, appointment, employment, recruitment, scholarship, training and other professional practices for its members, the profession, and mathematics students without regard to age, color, creed, disability, economic or social status, ethnic origin, gender, marital status, national origin, political belief, race, religion, or sexual orientation.
