Each semester, the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning hosts multiple semester-long interdisciplinary cohorts designed to help innovate or refine teaching techniques and learning activities. Cohorts typically meet four to six times per semester. Some cohorts may meet in a face-to-face environment, while others may meet virtually. In all cases, the participants serve as a learning community for one another.
Faculty Learning Communities
Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) are simply groups of faculty who meet several times over the course of a semester around a single theme. Often that will take the form of learning and investigating at first, and then attempting to implement in the classroom and share results.

Faculty Writing Club
Join with your fellow faculty Friday mornings from 10:00 a.m.–noon in a writing club to network, be productive, and provide gentle accountability. You can join online or in-person at the Faculty Center. If coming in person, feel free to bring your own device, but we’ll also have laptops you can borrow.
We will spend the first 5 minutes sharing our goals for the time block, and then spend the rest of the time working on our individual projects. During the last 5 minutes, we will share what we’ve accomplished and what we plan to do next time. Everyone is welcome!
