The Office of Faculty Development and Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching (OFD/FaCET) invites faculty to apply for Faculty Learning Communities (FLC) in the following areas:
Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) bring together groups of faculty from across disciplines to discuss pedagogical topics (see above) and to develop strategies for enhancing teaching and learning. During sessions facilitated by Faculty in Residence, we explore ways to create environments that challenge, excite, and inspire a passion for learning among ourselves and our students. In the process, we foster a supportive community of reflective teachers. FLCs are open to all tenure-track, tenured, and lecturer faculty.
FLC fellows attend scheduled meetings, typically equivalent to 4 hours per month during January, February, March, April, and May (dates and times for each FLC are included in individual descriptions). All FLCs meet for an Orientation on Friday, January 27th from 12:00-2pm. A final written report will be shared at a FLC Symposium open to the University community on Friday, June 8th from 12:00-2pm.
Compensation for FLC Fellows is $500.
