I filled out an application to be a fellow for this summer’s Digital Pedagogy Lab 2019. This was a response to the following question: Are there any other factors regarding your application for this fellowship that you think are relevant or that you would like to share?
Here is a screencapture of their checklist:
Here is a checklist of those they particularly want to see apply. I only tick one item on the checklist. Maybe that’s one big reason why I have never been invited. Maybe I am undeserving or haven’t done enough to merit the $1000 fellowship. That’s probably the reason. They have some savvy folk who get invited to this.
I added “rural teacher” and “elder teacher” to the list in case ageism is still a ‘thing’ and ‘placeism’ might be a thing.
