Description

Fellowship Information

The Ethics Pedagogy Fellows contribute to the Edmond J. Safra Center’s efforts to support faculty in developing curricula for new ethics courses or in revising curricula for current ethics courses, especially (but not limited to) the Program in General Education’s new courses in “Ethics & Civics.” Pedagogy Fellows will also provide course development support to instructors across campus seeking to introduce ethics into their curricula or to revamp existing offerings. Christopher Robichaud, best known on campus for his pioneering work in simulation design, leads the Ethics Pedagogy Fellows as the Center’s first-ever Director of Pedagogical Innovation. In addition to these aims, Pedagogy Fellows will also research, develop, and curate instructional models and teaching resources for Teaching Fellows assigned to ethics-related courses.

We seek Fellows who are especially interested in supporting new course development in General Education and consulting with Teaching Fellows assigned to Ethics and Civics courses in particular. These Fellows will collaborate with the fellows assigned to support the Program in General Education. In addition, some Fellows serve as at-large consultants for faculty in the College and Professional Schools across the university who teach ethics courses outside the Program in General Education. Wherever possible, Ethics Pedagogy Fellows will be assigned to consult with faculty and teaching staff on courses and educational initiatives that align with their interests and experience.

The fellowship program for the 2021-2022 academic year will focus Fellowship time generally on the following core areas:  

  • Contributing to the E.J. Safra Center’s efforts to support course development and other course support;    
  • Supplementing existing programs for instructional support with programming tailored to the specific needs of teaching staff assigned to ethics-related courses;  
  • Working with Center researchers on developing, curating and presenting innovative instructional models and teaching resources for use at Harvard and beyond;  
  • Consulting with programs, departments, and/or individual faculty members from a variety of disciplines on how to integrate ethical analysis into their curricula.

Additionally, we are also seeking Fellows who are interested in specializing in the following strategic project areas:

  • Contributing to the E.J. Safra Center’s efforts to support course development and other course support;    
  • Supplementing existing programs for instructional support with programming tailored to the specific needs of teaching staff assigned to ethics-related courses;  
  • Working with Center researchers on developing, curating and presenting innovative instructional models and teaching resources for use at Harvard and beyond;  

Consulting with programs, departments, and/or individual faculty members from a variety of disciplines on how to integrate ethical analysis into their curricula.

Eligibility

Qualifications include a demonstrable commitment to high-quality college teaching, experience as a Teaching Fellow in one or more ethics courses offered at Harvard University (or experience as a teaching assistant in an ethics course at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology), and a passion for pedagogical innovation. Experience teaching General Education courses is especially helpful. Any student pursuing a Master's or PhD at Harvard or MIT is eligible, but preference will be given to advanced PhD candidates. Renewal of the one-year fellowship is also possible.

Awards

The fellowship lasts for the full academic year with a commitment of 10 hours/week for the duration of the fellowship. Pay is commensurate with the Teaching Fellow stipend for one course section per semester, fall and spring (the equivalent to .20 teaching rate).  Fellows will also benefit from, and contribute to, the intellectually rich and dynamic life of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, as they are able to attend Center events such as lectures, dinners (if it is safe to hold them), seminars, workshops, and social activities.
