WISCIECE Service Fellows Program
Updated by Janaina on August 4, 12:00 pm

Cohort runs from September 2017 – May 2018.


The Wisconsin Institute for Science Education and Community Engagement (WISCIENCE) is launching a new professional development opportunity for graduate students and postdocs interested in incorporating service and community engagement into their work as scientists and educators. This is an excellent opportunity to get hands-on experience in a supportive environment.


This two-semester program is a unique opportunity to develop and teach materials in Exploring Service in Science, a first-year seminar that introduces science students to the world of public service.  In Fall 2017, Service Fellows will explore the literature and best practices in community-based learning, and learn how to facilitate a discussion-based seminar, work with first-year students, and foster community relationships.  In Spring 2018, Fellows will put all these skills into action as they teach in a section of Exploring Service.

Preference will be given to those whose field of study is connected to the sciences and who have teaching or TA experience.


 Interested?  Contact Jessica TeSlaa, by Monday, August 21.
