Wiley Fellows is a higher ed community focused on advancing education through innovation and leadership. Fellows is an outlet for educators of every kind to share new strategies and practices, all for transforming student outcomes.

It is made up of professors, program directors, and administrators from Wiley partner schools. Their expertise spans online instruction, faculty development, course design, emerging technologies, and more.

Each year, we invite the new cohorts of Fellows to collaborate on projects aiming to:

  • Solve challenges for students, faculty, and program leaders.
  • Examine trends and explore the viability of standard practices.
  • Identify innovations to advance the capabilities of all Wiley partners.
  • Advance partnerships by enhancing Wiley’s products and services.

By collaborating on these projects, Fellows will get opportunities to:

  • Publish and present findings discovered through research projects.
  • Receive recognition for excellence in higher education.
  • Connect with leaders and gain exposure to new ideas.
  • Learn about new services and technologies to support students in new ways.
  • Boost instructor performance in online and campus-based courses.
“Our faculty work closely with instructional designers to design courses that are innovative, that are engaging—my Wiley team is awesome.”
- Polly Smith, Utica College
