Faculty Learning Communities
The Office of Faculty Development is pleased to announce the 2012-2013 Faculty Learning Communities.
If you are interested in joining one of this year’s FLCs, please return a completed form with your first and second choices for participation.
- to develop the SoTL FLC as a learning community relative to research on learning communities and involve its members in shared leadership, reflective practice, collaborative learning and shared expertise,
- to develop, through a process of literature review and peer critique, well-written research designs for individual members that will result in project implementation and/or proposals for funding and
- to develop a plan for raising the profile of SoTL on Armstrong’s campus in collaboration with the Faculty Development Office. Should the members of the group decide they would like to have a shared text to supplement/support their endeavors, they may consider using Mary Anne Huber’s (2004) Balancing Acts: The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Academic Careers
- Lecture and handouts
- Large and small group discussion
- Hands-on exercises and writing assignments
Sessions will be held weekly in September and monthly thereafter Participants may choose to develop a proposal for Armstrong’s internal grant competition or for an external source of funding. Feel free to email Susan Arshack if you’d like a detailed syllabus for this FLC.
