Topic: Faculty Learning Communities
Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) support faculty as they in turn enhance student learning and success. The FLC at San Jose State is a cross-campus, cross-disciplinary faculty group implementing the high-impact practice of active learning in seven gateway STEM courses. Learn how the FLC is structured and begin planning your FLC.
Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) promote engaged conversations about student learning and instructional success while allowing participants to exchange ideas and explore strategies in an open and supportive environment. At UC Davis, the inaugural FLC program provides much needed professional development support for pre-tenure faculty interested in (re)defining what it means to focus on teaching and student learning at a research-intensive university. Presenters will share details of the implementation and evaluation of the FLC, and invite discussion about how research-intensive institutions can effectively support faculty navigating the ever-changing landscape of higher education.
