CTL’s Learning Community (LC) program is on hiatus for the 2016/2017 academic year. The program is being restructured and will resume in 2017/2018.
Calls for LC topics and facilitators will be announced early this summer.
Learning Communities bring together faculty members, graduate students, librarians, and staff educators for a series of meetings on like-minded topics. Dynamic conversations, resources, and opportunities to share issues and ideas are just a few of the things that participants walk away with.
Call for Learning Community topics and facilitators
Looking for ways to get involved? Do you have a teaching and learning topic that would engage a group of colleagues? If so, consider facilitating a Learning Community (LC).
Below are guidelines for facilitators, developed by CTL in response to faculty, graduate student, and staff educator feedback.
Submitting a topic
Proposed topics should consider the following:
- How will this topic contribute to the scholarship of teaching and learning?
- Do I have experience, resources, data, or articles to start the conversation prior to participant input?
Past LC topics have included:
- “Helping Students Learn from Student Peers”
- “Engaging Students in Large Classes: High Tech and Low Tech Strategies”
- “Reframing the Practice of Teaching: Including and Engaging All Students”
- “Engaging the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning”
- “Designing and Teaching Your Own Course”
- “Instructional Design: Models that Work for Learners”
- “Teaching and Diversity: Exploring Critical Pedagogies”
LC proposals are reviewed on an ongoing basis. If your proposal is accepted, Christine Sugatan (CTL Program Administrator) will contact you to schedule a planning meeting.
