Become a Fellow

Timeline 

October: Deadline for submission of a proposal to become a Mack Fellow to the FACET offices at facet@iu.edu. Please review the application criteria and the proposal tips. 

February: Successful applications are notified that they are Mack Fellows.

Mid-May of first year FACET Retreat: SoTL CampNew fellows meet immediately prior to the FACET retreat with a group of SoTL researchers to discuss their research and to gather ideas for addressing challenges that their research presents.

Fall and Spring after First FACET Retreat: Fellows work on their projects and remain in contact with one another on their progress.

Second FACET Retreat: Fellows discuss their completed projects and give a final presentation at the FACET retreat. They also attend SoTL camp prior to the retreat to offer feedback to the entering class of new Fellows.

Post Second FACET Retreat: After the retreat Fellows revise their manuscripts and prepare their article for submission to a peer-reviewed journal. (We encourage fellows to consider our journals, the Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and the Journal of Teaching and Learning with Technology, as publication outlets.) At this point, fellows should also be planning additional avenues for dissemination, such as other publications or the implementation of new programs of research. All fellows should be presenting their work on campus—for example, at seminars or workshops organized by their teaching and learning center or their FACET liaison.
