Why Apply?

 The Teaching Fellows Program at Krea University has been envisioned keeping two principles in mind. First, early-career researchers are often unsure about pursuing an academic trajectory that incorporates both teaching and research largely because they lack prior teaching experience to make an informed decision. The Teaching Fellow program at Krea aspires to address this imbalance by providing a safe space for early-career academics to explore pedagogy first-hand with the full support and mentorship provided by Krea faculty. Second, in order to promote a strong symbiosis between research and teaching, we wish for prospective Teaching Fellows to co-create and benefit from the already existing interdisciplinary and interwoven environment in Krea. Teaching Fellows will have the option to take any courses offered at Krea.
