Faculty Learning Communities

Each year, the Center for Teaching and Learning sponsors and facilitates a number of faculty learning communities (FLCs), which are structured cohorts of faculty and staff that build community, engage in scholarly practice, and develop the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL).

Experiential Learning with Community Impact: Online FLC to support planning and implementing Service-Learning into your course

Interested in learning about how to implement Service-Learning (SL) in your course? Then join us this spring for the online, asynchronous Experiential Learning with Community Impact FLC. Participants will review SL models, try out SL essential practices, develop a SL experience with a community partner, and take steps to successfully integrate SL into their course. Other benefits of participating in the FLC include:

  • Review the pedagogy that makes SL a high-impact practice
  • Explore new ideas for assessment and SL scholarship
  • Learn alongside an interdisciplinary community of faculty peers

The approximate time commitment is a total of 12 hours. Educators who complete all six modules and submit a SL plan will receive a $300 grant for professional expenses.

Register via the online Experiential Learning registration form. Please contact KaraBrascia@boisestate.edu with questions.

Designing for Student Success Faculty Learning Community*

The Designing for Student Success Faculty Learning Community is intended for faculty who teach courses critical for student success and who want to design courses that support student success. Courses critical for student success include those that have a high impact on retention (e.g. lower division courses, courses that are prerequisites for majors, or those that serve as critical junctures in undergraduate degree completion). There are seven 120-minute bi-weekly sessions. Upon completion of the FLC requirements, each participant will receive a stipend of $500 ($250 for one semester of planning and $250 for one semester of implementation).

*This is a one-year FLC (same cohort does both Spring and Fall) and recruits in the fall for a spring cohort. Those who are interested are encouraged to check in the fall semester and apply to be in a new cohort at that time. Learn more and sign up for Designing for Student Success!
