Flexible Teaching Fellows Program

Program Overview

TLOS offers a variety of support programs for flexible learning experiences, including professional development, instructional design, and instructional media development.

As part of our support for flexible learning experiences at Virginia Tech, TLOS convened a group of faculty fellows to offer course quality reviews and peer consultation, as well as facilitate professional development around flexible course quality. Faculty fellows receive a stipend, complete grant-funded professional development, and rely on their experiences with flexible teaching to influence departmental decisions around flexible teaching quality. The program increases capacity for departments and colleges to ensure courses meet quality standards.

In order to grow flexible learning quality processes, TLOS and the faculty fellows partnered to raise awareness of course quality standards and offer flexible course reviews as a service.

Faculty fellows have offered service to the university in the following ways:

Faculty Fellows attend quarterly meetings with TLOS to assess program success and complete three credit hours of service during the agreement period as outlined in the chart below.

Service Options Credit Hours

Consultation 0.5
