Faculty Learning Communities forming to foster career development

April 17, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Tenure track and teaching faculty at any Penn State location who are interested in forming small communities of peers to work together for the 2018-19 academic year should submit a proposal by May 11.

Teaching and Learning with Technology Faculty Learning Communities (FLC) is a new faculty-led professional development program for tenure track and teaching faculty at any Penn State campus. Its focus is to bring together faculty who want to explore a shared interest in an area that deals with teaching and learning.

Faculty who identify and lead an FLC will receive a $500 stipend. Up to an additional $500 is available for participants who conduct FLC meetings such as lunches, tech tools or guest speakers. FLCs may be formed cross-college, cross-campus, and/or cross discipline and will be led by a full-time faculty member.

FLCs selected for funding will be announced the week of June 4.
