Wiley Fellows Connect and Share Ideas

Our Wiley Fellows Community

The Wiley Fellows initiative provides a platform for innovative higher education leaders and professionals to disseminate innovative and strategic practices and share their accomplishments and enthusiasm with others.

Fellows are made up of a distinguished group of faculty, program directors, and administrators from a network of Wiley partner schools. Some are veteran online instructors, others are pioneers of nascent initiatives at their colleges and universities.

Each year, Fellows are asked to collaborate on specific projects that aim to accomplish at least one of the following:

  • Solve challenges for students, faculty, and/or other university partners
  • Gain a deeper understanding of, validate assumptions, or debunk common or trending practices in higher education
  • Push Wiley and its partners to the forefront of new and innovative practices
  • Collaborate with Wiley on its product and service offerings to enhance our partnerships

There are several advantages to being part of the Wiley Fellows community:

  • Publishing and presentation opportunities from project deliverables
  • Recognition for excellence and leadership in teaching and learning
  • Connection to pioneering professionals and exposure to new ideas
  • Deeper understanding of Wiley’s content, services and technology
  • Influence in Wiley’s current and future product and service initiatives
  • Opportunity to make a tangible difference to the future of teaching

The ability to talk with other people…who are doing exactly the same, and who are…developing programs, assessing them, thinking about mainstreaming them, has been really helpful.

—Helen Dawson, University of Birmingham, UK

A network is something you have to build and nurture and I think bringing together some of the best minds in online education across different universities really becomes an incubator for new ideas.

—Susan Cheng, Benedictine University, USA

It’s an opportunity to really be futuristic in terms of where we think we might need to be, and to hear from my peers.

—Steven Szydlowski, University of Scranton, USA

It’s stimulating, it’s motivating, it allows us to take that content back to our campuses and energize the faculty that we’re working with.

—Polly Smith, Utica College, USA

The main benefits of being a Faculty Fellow for me is the opportunity to interact with people who live and breathe online learning. And I find their enthusiasm really infectious.

—Catherine Staite, University of Birmingham, UK
