Attendance is limited to forty participants, so please register early.

We also organize a Faculty Learning Community for adjuncts each semester. The meetings are informal discussions about teaching and learning issues, and you will have the chance to meet part-time faculty from other disciplines.

In this FLC, we will focus on several effective teaching and learning strategies. The adjunct FLC will meet four times over the fall semester, and adjunct faculty who attend all four sessions and successfully complete the deliverables will receive a $200 grant. The deliverables will be

  1. Revise at least one lecture to embed multiple, learning activities
  2. Revise one assignment for greater transparency of expectations
  3. Revise your syllabus for greater transparency as an aid to learning
The meetings will be held on Wednesday evenings (1/25, 2/22, 3/22, and 4/12) from 6:00-8:00 in CL1-205 (main campus). We will accept the first ten applicants.
