Call for Proposals: CELT 2021-2022 Faculty Learning Community
Interested in facilitating a group of faculty and staff around a common topic that provides the opportunity to work together in a supportive and collaborative environment contributing to successful faculty and staff development?
A Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is a group of faculty and professionals from various disciplines who meet every two weeks throughout the 2021-2022 academic year around a specific theme- teaching, scholarship, or service-related. The shared premise is that the opportunity to work together in a supportive and collaborative environment contributes to successful faculty and staff development.
What’s involved? Each learning community requires at least one member to serve as the facilitator of that group. The facilitator’s job is to help the community meet its objectives through scheduling meetings, retreats, and other events, selecting readings and other material for discussion, and working with other campus stakeholders involved with faculty development to help assess the effectiveness of their faculty learning community. Participants will be expected to actively be present in meetings and activities.
CELT is taking requests for facilitators willing to serve with a FLC during the 2021-2022 academic year- simply complete the Mach Form by June 11, 2021. When the communities are identified, an open call for participants to register will be announced. Connect with Lynda Cochran should you have any questions or to sound out ideas.
