CREATE Fellows

What is CREATE?

CEE’s mission is to promote and support effective learning for all UC Davis students. In fulfillment of this mission, CEE offers the Course REdesign And Teaching Effectiveness (CREATE) Fellows Program, a year-long fellowship program designed to support faculty engagement in course (re)design/innovation and promote learner-centered, evidence-based teaching practices that foster success for all students on the UC Davis campus.

What do CREATE Fellows do?

CREATE Fellows participate in a program that includes workshop participation, consultations with CEE specialists, reading of current literature on learning and teaching and a course redesign project.  During the seven-part workshop series, CREATE Fellows engage with foundational concepts related to learner-centered teaching.  Past workshops have included topics such as syllabus and course design, designing assignments and assessments, promoting active learning in the classroom, and designing courses for hybrid and online learning.  At the conclusion of the program, CREATE Fellows present their course redesigns at CEE’s Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) conference or other venue.
