We are excited to announce the launch of 5 NEW faculty learning communities (FLCs)!
FLCs are small groups of faculty and instructors who meet regularly throughout the semester or year about a specific topic related to teaching and learning. They provide the opportunity to connect with colleagues from across the university by engaging in active, collaborative discussions about teaching and learning in a supportive environment. FLC members will learn about and implement innovative techniques that may even result in collaborative scholarship or research related to teaching and learning.
We are offering 5 FLCs for the Spring 2021 semester:
- Student Engagement: Creating a sense of community in an online course
- In-Person Teaching During COVID: Flexible teaching, physical distancing and live streaming
- Book Club: Small Teaching Online by Flower Darby and James Lang
- Teaching Synchronous Online Courses
- Teaching with Microsoft Teams
Each FLC will meet online 3-4 times during the spring 2021 semester (dates and times will be determined based on the availability of those who are interested in participating). The communities will have a maximum of 12 members and are open to all faculty, instructors, and teaching staff. Unfortunately, FLCs are not open to graduate teaching assistants at this time.
We hope you will join us for one of the new faculty learning communities! Learn more and register for one by January 29, 2021!
