Faculty Learning Communities

The goal of the learning communities project is to improve student learning in the areas of problem solving, critical thinking, and writing through staff and faculty engagement in improvement of their own instruction/work with students in one or more of these areas.

Members of learning community groups provide critical feedback to each other around specific issues and problems related to student learning in the areas mentioned above. Individuals identify a problem or an issue in their teaching. They present the problem to the group. Group members discuss the problem and offer ideas, using a discussion protocol.
