1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

    The Office of the Provost is pleased to invite applications and nominations for the 2017 Faculty Learning Community (FLC). This year, there will be distinct FLC groups around three themes: 3D Scanning, Printing, and Visualization; Flipped and Active Learning; and Student Generated Media.

    The deadline for applications is Friday, December 16. 

    The FLC program was the focus of the University’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). FLCs give faculty members from all disciplines the knowledge, skills, and pedagogical support to improve their teaching and enhance the learning environment.

    The University regards FLC membership as an acknowledgment of excellent, innovative, and effective teaching. It is open to all full-time University faculty who are engaged in undergraduate teaching. Faculty who are selected will be designated as FLC Fellows and will receive a one-course teaching reduction in the Fall 2017 semester. In addition, each FLC group will share a pool of funds (approximately $6,000) to draw upon for either a group investment or smaller individual purchases that support their theme.

    The FLC Fellows will meet during the Spring 2017 and Fall 2017 semesters, and will participate in weekly discussions, workshops, and a virtual community. They also will be expected to incorporate active-learning concepts into an existing or new course, utilize emerging tools/technologies as part of the course, assess active-learning outcomes, and teach the enhanced course at least three times during the five years after their FLC is concluded.
