The Costanzo Teaching Fellowship
The Costanzo Teaching Fellowship is a unique, year-long opportunity for rising juniors and seniors to develop leadership skills as part of the teaching team for Introductory Psychology (PSY 101). The Costanzo Teaching Fellows are paid and receive substantial training, including enrollment in a 1-credit Psychology Teaching Seminar (PSY 601S, which counts toward the Psychology major and minor) during the fall term.
Applications for the 2024-25 Academic Year are due March 8th, 2024
Costanzo Teaching Fellows learn to:
The Costanzo Teaching Fellowship Teaching Cycle
The Teaching Fellow application cycle begins early spring semester, with applications for the following academic year opening in January.
Applications are typically due just before Spring Break and are reviewed in March and interviews are usually scheduled in March and April.
Final selections for the fellowship are made by the end of April.
A luncheon welcoming new Teaching Fellows typically takes place during the last week of class.
The TFs receive access to the textbook and teaching Wiki over the summer and are encouraged to get acquainted with course materials.
A training orientation is held the Saturday before classes begin.
TFs begin their Psychology Teaching Seminar (PSY 601S) and begin their responsibilities, co-teaching one section each week and solo teaching another.
TFs attend weekly check-in meetings and continue to teach 1-2 solo sections a week.
An end-of-year celebration marks the end of the Fellowship.
