Communities

Learning Communities (FLCs) are a special kind of community of practice. The purpose of the FLCs are to engage in an active, collaborative, yearlong program, with a curriculum focused on enhancing teaching and learning with seminars and activities that promote learning, development and community building.

What is a Faculty Learning Community?

A Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is an interdisciplinary group of faculty members who meet regularly and engage in scholarly practices to increase their knowledge about teaching and innovative instructional practices. This takes place in a supportive, scholarly atmosphere to explore and apply knowledge acquired within the community. FLCs represent a strategic approach to advancing lessons learned across the institution.

Collaborative, informative and project driven.

Together, participants assess their students’ understanding; design, plan and implement new instructional practices based on research; and reflect on their own approach to teaching and learning.
