Here’s a stubborn situation that absolutely needs to be confronted: many faculty are slow adopters of new technology, yet they are charged with preparing students for a 21st-century workplace that assumes not just a proficiency with new technological tools but also a trained creative-critical sensibility that can make the most of them. The Creative Discovery Fellows Program addresses that situation constructively, by familiarizing faculty with the appropriate tools and giving students the guidance they need to engage with them in a deep way.

The Creative Discovery Fellows program is an opportunity for select faculty to develop creative assignments in their AC courses, with the support of a staff-and-student team over a one-year period.  Fellows receive specialized training, consult with experts on developing and piloting their assignment, and have the opportunity to meet and share ideas with other faculty from across campus. No previous experience required! To see instructors from past cohorts, please review the Case Studies page.

To learn more about becoming a Creative Discovery Fellow, please visit our Program Model page.  Questions? Contact Jean Cheng and Victoria Robinson or

The next call for proposals will open in May 2020, pending availability of funds.
