A faculty learning community (FLC) is a cross-disciplinary cohort of 8-12 faculty who engage in a collaborative program to ask questions about teaching and learning, explore teaching innovations, assess the impact on student learning, and present and publish scholarship about their work.
Most FLCs meet monthly during the academic year for 2-3 hours per session, but session length and frequency vary by topic. Typically, each participant selects a project related to the topic to explore with the goal of disseminating learning at the conclusion of the FLC. Between sessions, participants read selected resources independently and share information related to the topic with the group.
Most FLC participants report that the experience of collaborating with other faculty, across disciplinary boundaries, on topics of shared interest is stimulating and refreshing. Many develop new projects and research collaborations as a result. Others report gaining greater confidence and experiencing greater enjoyment as teachers.
