The aim of this interactive workshop is to describe and discuss a Leadership in Teaching & Learning Fellowship program recently implemented at an Ontario University. With this program, we aim to build leadership capacity in teaching, extend the conversations about teaching and learning by fostering the growth of networks, disseminate project outcomes both within and beyond departmental boundaries and implement a mentorship element to better enable faculty to lead their departments through a process of continuous development. We will describe the program, which is comprised of two complementary streams: 1) Evaluating Course Impact, and 2) Implementing Program Change. The Evaluating Course Impact stream focuses on generating evidence of high impact innovations within courses and the Implementing Program Change focuses on implementing a change initiative to enhance academic programs. Preliminary results from the inaugural cohort of program participants will be presented to highlight their experiences and perspectives of the Fellowship program.
