Faculty Learning Communities

A Faculty Learning Community is a group of faculty members who gather to study and dialogue about an area in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). The communities can be discipline-specific and can also include faculty from different disciplines throughout the college. Faculty Learning Communities support faculty in engaging SoTL to support student learning. Faculty may request that an FLC be created and supported by Faculty Development by filling out the form at the bottom of the page.

Faculty Development & Transformational Educational Initiatives (FDTEI) is facilitating a new Faculty Learning Community this year to support personal and professional development around JEDI.

Faculty Learning Community: JEDI in the Classroom

This Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is designed as an ongoing space for faculty to be in community with each other, develop trust for open dialogue, and discuss justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) issues in the classroom. We will share best teaching practices and engage in self-reflection. We will discuss topics such as racial identity development, gender identity, bias and microaggressions, responding to challenging situations, classroom and department climate, and inclusive teaching strategies. Come with any questions you may have about your experiences regarding JEDI in your classroom. Feel free to come to one or all of the sessions as you are able - we look forward to being with you!

FLC meetings will be held virtually over zoom. Register for the faculty learning community meetings in the SLCC Registration System under Faculty Development.

Dates: Thursdays, 1:30 – 2:30 pm, January 27, February 24, March 31, April 21
