Visiting Fellows in Digital and Open Learning

The Office of Open Learning at the University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, invites ongoing expressions of interest for the position of Visiting Fellow in Digital and Open Learning. 

The Visiting Fellows are typically experienced academic developers, educators, practitioners, and researchers who are able to take leave from their home institutions to experience higher education in a Canadian institution. We are seeking Visiting Fellows with broad interests including, but not exclusively, in digital learning and teaching, open educational practices, equity, accessibility, ethical educational technologies, decolonization of technologies, humanizing higher education, and the intersection of Indigeneity and technology.  

The fellowship offers the opportunity to:  

  • live, work and learn in a Canadian institution for up to approximately 3 months; 

  • work with the Office of Open Learning team who have a unique focus within Canadian higher education on open education and digital practices in teaching and learning; 

  • make connections and develop lasting collaborations; 

  • bring and learn new perspectives, and share your own experience and knowledge with a new audience; 

  • explore the many cultural and academic institutions close to the University of Windsor in the warmest and southernmost part of Canada! 

Visiting Fellows will be provided a fully furnished apartment on campus for a period of up to three months, as well as space in the OOL offices and support in making connections to the campus and beyond. Please note, the Fellowship does not provide any salary or stipend. Fellows typically share their expertise with campus through workshops and other events as mutually agreed.  

We invite expressions of interest from people from all parts of the globe and across disciplines! These are evaluated on a rolling basis and potential fellows are invited to an initial conversation with the team. Please send expressions of interest and a C.V., or requests for further information to:
