Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) bring together groups of faculty from across disciplines to discuss pedagogical scholarly topics, to collaborate and to develop strategies for enhancing teaching and learning and to grow as teacher-scholars. During sessions facilitated by Faculty in Residence, FLC fellows 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 and scholars.
FLC fellows are required to attend scheduled meetings, typically equivalent to four (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 on Friday, December 4th, 12:00-2:00 pm. A final work product, poster, or presentation will be shared at a gathering open to the University community on Friday, June 3rd, 2016 from 12:00-2:00 pm.
Compensation for FLC Fellows is $1000.00.
To apply, send a brief cover letter (approximately 500 words) and curriculum vitae by email attachment to Jessica Weiss, Director, in the Office of Faculty Development by 5 pm, Wednesday November 25, 2015. firstname.lastname@example.org. Please cc the Faculty in Residence for the FLC to which you are applying.
