International FAIMER Institute
Program Delivery Method: Online
The International FAIMER Institute (IFI) is delivered in two distinct yearlong programs with the Education Innovation Project being the link throughout the fellowship. The Year 1 and Year 2 programs begin in June and end the following May.
Each year of the two-year online fellowship consists of two phases.
The Phase 1 - Instruction Phase begins in June and consists of two weeks of synchronous online learning sessions held Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. EDT (UTC-4). The 2023 IFI Fellowship will require synchronous virtual engagement of 4+ hours per day (Monday-Friday) for two weeks from June 5th to June 16th, 2023. We highly recommend you discuss your application with your dean to ensure you have the time available to devote fully to the program, to ensure your success.
The Phase 2 - Implementation Phase of the fellowship runs from July 2023 to May 2024 and will consist of six months (July 2023-December 2023) of course and project work, followed by five months (January 2024-May 2024) of independent project work and community engagement.
- During the course and project work period (6 months), there will be 1-3 synchronous sessions each month, along with planned one-on-one meetings with assigned project advisors, and asynchronous curriculum work.
- During independent project work and community engagement period (5 months), there will be approximately two synchronous sessions along with asynchronous curriculum work.
Each fellowship cohort should expect a great deal of interactive group work with their colleagues in their cohort. The Year 1 and Year 2 cohorts should also expect interactions and group work between their different cohorts. There will be opportunities during the course to engage with the FAIMER global community.
The contents of the course schedule are subject to change.
