The Center for Teaching and Learning is piloting a new professional development opportunity for 2020-21: Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs).
FLCs consist of small groups of instructors (10 max) who meet regularly throughout the academic year to learn together about a specific topic related to teaching and learning. FLCs are designed to be supportive environments where members can engage in a variety of activities and experiment with new approaches to teaching; share successes and challenges; reflect on teaching practices; and learn about instructional strategies and tools. By the end of the academic year, the FLC members will share their knowledge with the DePaul community.
Proposals for FLCs were reviewed by a committee that included instructors and staff from the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity, the Associate Provost for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the Office for Multicultural Student Success, and the Center for Teaching and Learning.
The proposal review committee worked with the leader(s) of the FLCs to select FLC participants through an application process. A primary goal of the committee was to ensure FLCs not only advance inclusive teaching practices at DePaul, but that the FLC participants reflect the diversity of our DePaul community. Participants will receive stipends of $300 each.
