Learning Communities

Proposing a Learning Community at the Center for Faculty Excellence.

The Center For Faculty Excellence sponsors 11 interdisciplinary Faculty Learning Communities each year. Communities are generally proposed by faculty members with an interest in a topic related to teaching and learning. As a result of participation in the community, members are expected to produce "deliverables" such as specific and measurable changes to pedagogy, course redesigns, assignment redisgns, resource materials, and so on.

The proposal process generally begins in early May and extends through the end of that month. The CFE will notify facilitators about the status of their proposals and will begin to solicit members. To run, a community must have a minimum of 8 members. The maximum number of members is 10. Applications are due by August 22nd. LC facilitators will select and notify members and will establish specific meeting dates for the community. The community should meet from 6 to 8 times per semester. For more information about facilitating a learning community see the following link.
