The RCO offers a variety of opportunities for faculty and graduate students to be involved in their pedagogical development.
The RCO offers the following learning opportunities for faculty and graduate students:
The RCO offers the following teaching appointments in the Residential Colleges (RCs):
RCO Instructor Appointments: An RCO Instructor is a faculty member who maintains an appointment in his/her home department but also teaches RCO general education or core courses in the RCs (and may develop and/or engage in co-curricular experiences with RC students).
Financial Arrangement: For each three-credit course to be taught “in load” by an RCO Instructor, $4000 will be provided to the home unit (or directly to the faculty member if an adjunct) to be used at the discretion of the unit.
Graduate Teaching Fellow and Faculty Mentor Appointments: A Graduate Teaching Fellowship is an opportunity for graduate students to explore, develop, and teach a course as part of the UNCG Residential Colleges General Education curriculum. Participating graduate students are paired with a distinguished faculty mentor in the area of equity, diversity, and inclusion. The faculty mentor will assist the student in the exploration, development, and teaching of courses incorporating equity, diversity, and inclusion with content from the student’s respective discipline. Graduate Teaching Fellows are expected to develop and teach a 100/200-level general education course within UNCG’s Residential Colleges; meet with the UTLC every two weeks to complete the development of their respective course designs, debrief the teaching experience, and further develop their teaching profile; and meet with their faculty mentor regularly to explore the challenges, benefits, and importance of teaching equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Financial Arrangement: For each three-credit course to be taught by a Graduate Teaching Fellow, $2000 will be provided to the participating graduate student and $2000 will be provided to the faculty mentor supporting the Graduate Teaching Fellow.
