Education Leaders-In-Residence

Education Leaders-in-Residence

The Education Leaders-in-Residence (ELIR) program is designed to support the development of high-impact practices by providing Queen’s faculty members with protected time and funds to develop and implement campus-wide teaching and learning initiatives.

Each Education Leader will dedicate approximately 20% of their time to the ELIR program and receive a teaching and learning development fund of $15,000 over two years. The Education Leaders will consult broadly to develop and implement actionable and innovative projects with clearly stated outcomes.

ELIR applications are being sought to develop teaching and learning initiatives in the following areas:

  • teaching and learning practices that foster interdisciplinarity; 

  • mental health and the teaching and learning environment;

  • anti-racism and intersectional pedagogies.

Applications will be evaluated based on their alignment with the priority areas listed above, as well as the stated outcomes and deliverables.

The program is open to all faculty members.

Applications must include:

  • a cover letter (maximum three pages) describing a work plan for their proposed initiative and deliverables in one of the ELIR program target areas;

  • a CV; and

  • a list of three referee names and their affiliations.

Application deadline:

The deadline to apply is November 1, at 4:00pm EST. The application package should be sent electronically in one file to vptl@queensu.ca.
