What is a Faculty Learning Community?

A Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is a peer-led group of faculty members who engage in an active, collaborative, year–long program, structured to provide encouragement, support, and reflection.

Benefits of joining an FLC:

  • Stimulate innovation and create experiential, collaborative learning environments
  • Increase collaboration and make the best use of limited funding
  • Provide a flexible professional development structure to support learning of any topic
  • Increase communication and collaboration among faculty who, by the nature of their work in individual classrooms, are often isolated from colleagues

Participant Expectations:

  • Attend required sessions one and six
  • Attend an additional two sessions of your choice
  • Propose, construct and present your “Big Idea Project”
  • Present at a future Passport to Great Teaching workshop

This upcoming academic year we will have 3 different FLC’s:

  • Creative Assessment
  • Digital Literacy
  • Experiential Learning
Creative Assessment

Go beyond the “one size fits all” assessment and develop strategies contoured to your students, your course material, and your teaching technique. Make assessment an integral part of the learning experience.

Timothy S. Brophy is Director of Institutional Assessment at the University of Florida and Professor of Music Education. Prior to his appointment as Director, he was Assistant Dean for Research, Technology, and Administrative Affairs in the College of the Arts and a member of the music education faculty in the School of Music.
