Intentional Personal and Professional Growth: Faculty Learning Communities

Event Date & Time

  • June 9, 2021
    3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Event Description

Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) create space each week for instructors to deepen their practice of student-centred teaching and learning and foster meaningful conversation that prompts personal and professional growth.

This session will provide an example of a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) in the Department of Biology; loosely described as a diverse team of faculty from various ranks and research areas, most of whom had never taught first year students and all of whom had never used the evidence-based approach employed the large enrolment, multi-section introductory biology courses, who successfully implemented a brand new online laboratory science curriculum!

Come join us if you’d like to hear about their journey, learn more about Faculty Learning communities, and be inspired to start your own Learning Community in any department or discipline.
