Institutional Support and Commitment

 

The AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program looks forward to partnering with the home institutions of Research Fellows.

 

Assurance of institutional support is of critical importance to the success of AMATYC Project SLOPE.

 

AMATYC’s Commitment to Research Fellows and their Home Institutions

 

AMATYC commits to engaging all Research Fellows in a sustained, meaningful, and impactful professional development experience centered on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).

 

Through a National Science Foundation Grant, AMATYC will provide support for eligible fellows to attend a 2019 summer workshop on SoTL hosted by Portland State University, in Portland, OR, and the 2019 AMATYC National Conference in Milwaukee, WI.

 

AMATYC Project SLOPE will facilitate and host an interactive online community for Research Fellows throughout the duration of the program.

 

Additionally, AMATYC Project SLOPE will promote each fellow and institution in its publicity effort, providing national recognition of institutions and their commitment to faculty development and student success.

 

Home Institution Commitment to their Research Fellows and AMATYC Project SLOPE

 

Home institutions will allow Project SLOPE Research Fellows to conduct classroom based research in their classrooms; help Research Fellows seek IRB approval through institutional avenues, or allow Research Fellows to seek IRB approval through AMATYC’s network; and provide professional leave time for travel to the SoTL Summer workshop (June 13 – 15, 2019), the 2019 AMATYC National Conference (November 14 – 17, 2019), and the 2020 AMATYC National Conference (November 12 – 15, 2020).

Institutional Cost Sharing: The home institutions of Research Fellows will provide support for their Research Fellows to attend the 2020 AMATYC National Conference in Spokane, WA.

 

It is estimated that the total institutional commitment will be $1800 in 2020 for conference registration and travel funds.

 

Letter of Institutional Support

 

A letter of institutional understanding and commitment to the AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program and the professional development of the home Research Fellow is necessary for the acceptance process. The letter should be signed by a college administrator who has the decision making authority to ensure a Research Fellow’s full participation in the program.

 

A template of a letter of institutional commitment is available[MB1] .

 

The letter must include statements that articulate the following:

1. The home institution will allow the research fellow to conduct classroom based research in the fellow’s own classroom.

 

2. The home institution will help the research fellow seek IRB approval through institutional avenues or allow the research fellow to seek IRB approval through AMATYC’s network.

 

3. The home institution will provide professional leave time for travel to the SoTL Summer workshop (June 13 – 15, 2019), the 2019 AMATYC National Conference (November 14 – 17, 2019), and the 2020 AMATYC National Conference (November 12 – 15, 2020).

 

4. The home institution will financially support its Research Fellows travel to the 2020 AMATYC Conference in Spokane, WA.

The letter must be postmarked or submitted via email by Friday, November 30, 2018 at 5 PM Central Time for full consideration of an application.

 

The letter can be submitted via email to: Megan.Breit-Goodwin@anokaramsey.edu.
