About Us

Wiley Fellows

Let’s take education further. Share ideas and spark innovation with our global community of university leaders and education professionals in Wiley Fellows.

A Hub of Leadership and Innovation

Wiley Fellows is a higher ed community focused on advancing education through innovation and leadership. Fellows is an outlet for post-secondary educators to share new strategies and practices and create new possibilities for student outcomes.

How Wiley Fellows works

Fellows is made up of professors, program directors, and administrators from our diverse partner colleges and universities. Their expertise spans online instruction, faculty development, course design, emerging technologies, and more.

Each year, we invite the new cohorts of Fellows to collaborate on projects that aim to:

  • Solve challenges for students, faculty, and program leaders
  • Look at current trends in higher education and explore which standard practices are effective and which may be outdated
  • Identify innovations and improve Wiley’s products and services to advance the capabilities of all Wiley partners

By collaborating on these projects, Fellows get the chance to:

  • Publish and present findings discovered through research projects
  • Receive recognition for excellence in higher education
  • Connect with leaders and gain exposure to new ideas
  • Learn about new services and technologies to better support students
  • Boost instructor performance in online and campus-based courses
