Faculty Learning Community

About the FLC

The Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is a trans-disciplinary community of practice where faculty are actively engaged in collaboration, experimentation with technology, and development of innovative teaching practices. The FLC meets throughout the year to discuss ideas, possible course activities, and technologies to enhance teaching and learning. These discussions lead to long-lasting bonds and interdisciplinary partnerships, and is foundational to enhancing the teaching and learning environment at the university.

Quality Enhancement Plan

As part of the 2008 Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), faculty learning communities were created for accreditation and enhancement of undergraduate courses, by addressing the teaching and learning environment of faculty. During 2015-2019, faculty learning communities were topic-centered and with a focus on Information, Communication, and Technology (ICT) literacy. Since Fall 2019, faculty learning communities are formed in alignment with the 'Learning Through Dialogue and Discussion' QEP.
