Faculty Learning Communities provide faculty the opportunity for sustained reflection on a substantial and timely teaching question. Grounded in the belief that teaching best happens in community, FLCs seek to bring faculty together across disciplines to investigate questions that matter to all our classrooms.
See below for details about our fall 2014 FLCs on Engaging Students in the "Flipped" Classroom and Exploring the iPad as a Teaching and Learning Tool.
Who leads the FLC?
FLCs are typically facilitated by a faculty pair who take responsibility for organizing and convening the FLC, although all members participate in shaping the group's focus and conversations.
What is the time commitment?
FLCs are typically organized as a discussion group that meets regularly (usually every other week) over the course of a semester to discuss readings chosen by the facilitators and participants. All participants will be expected to submit a brief final report assessing the impact of the FLC on their teaching within a semester of its conclusion.
Is there a stipend?
Faculty who participate in the FLC receive a stipend of $500 (unless otherwise noted in a particular FLC's description).
How do I sign up?
See the descriptions of the specific FLCs below for application instructions. Once you have submitted your application, the FLC organizers will be in touch regarding next steps.
