Call for Applicants for the Spring 2012 Faculty Learning Communities (Deadline Friday August 31st.)
FLCs are peer lead groups of faculty (8-12) that engage in an active, collaborative, and supportive, year–long program with curriculum focused on a particular topic, problem or question. The goal of the FLC is to develop skills, knowledge, and expertise in the area of interest by creating a focused time and space apart from the daily work environment. The products of these FLCs will enable faculty to produce, collect, and evaluate evidence of student learning or secure funding for scholarly or creative projects.
CHEMISTRY STEM Gateway FLC: A two semester program. Participants will use action research to examine student learning and content sequencing to inform curricular revision. Collaboratively an action research question will be framed and data will be gathered to inform the question. There will be a focus on the implementation of Peer Assisted Learning, Early Intervention, and Commit to Study Programs. Participants will analyze and present findings for the purpose of departmental curricular revision.
MATH STEM Gateway FLC: A one semester program. Participants will focus on the implementation of Peer Assisted Learning, Early Intervention, and Commit to Study Programs. Action research will be used by the participants to examine student learning for the purpose of course revision.
The STEM FLC’s will be conducted over the Academic Year 2012/12013.
CHEMISTRY STEM FLC meets 8 times over the academic year (4 meetings per semester) (see CHEMISTRY STEM FLC syllabi)
MATH STEM FLC meets 4 times over the semester (MATH STEM FLC will be offered Fall 2012 and Spring 2013) (see MATH STEM FLC syllabi)
