Faculty Learning Communities Available through OFE

The Office of Faculty Enhancement announces two Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) available for the Fall 2015 semester, FLIP - Flipping Learning Innovation Panel and TIME – Teaching Innovations for Multi-faceted Engagement.

Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) are groups of approximately 6-12 faculty members organized around a theme or cohort who commit to meeting regularly and to working collaboratively on issues relevant to all members within the FLC.

Below is a description of each group with meeting times and dates. FLCs will meet in the Faculty Lounge, Building 16, Room 4202

FLIP – Flipping Learning Innovation Panel
A flipped classroom is one in which lectures are delivered online and face-to-face time is devoted to student projects and homework. If you are interested in learning more or if you have experimented with various forms of class flipping, this FLC is for you. Come and share your ideas and hear from others who are working on flipping their classrooms.
