Adjunct Faculty Learning Community
The Adjunct Faculty Learning Community (AFLC) is designed to address pedagogical questions that Adjunct Faculty may have and to help them build a community of fellow educators. The AFLC will also provide opportunities for Adjunct Faculty to reflect on what they have learned about teaching.
Activities of the Faculty Learning Community
The members of the Adjunct Faculty Learning Community will be expected to do the following:
- Attend four cohort meetings. These meetings will be held once a month during the semester. Specific dates and times will be set based on the availability of cohort participants. These sessions will provide an opportunity for participants to share what they have learned through the activities of the AFLC
- Attend at least two CTL workshops during the semester. A workshop schedule can be found on the CTL’s events page.
- Have a Mid-Semester Assessment (MAP) conducted for a course they teach. Information on MAPs can be found on the MAP webpage.
- Submit a brief reflection on a new teaching technique they attempted during the AFLC.
Adjunct Faculty who complete the expectations outlined on this page by the end of the program will receive a $200 stipend.
Application Process and Deadline
All Boise State adjunct faculty are eligible to apply. We are now accepting applications for the fall 2023 semester. To apply, complete the Boise State Adjunct Faculty Learning Community application form by 9:00am on September 4th, 2023.
Only a limited number of faculty can be selected to participate in the AFLC. Your application will be judged, in part, on the strength and thoroughness of your answers to the questions on the application form. However, our selection of participants will also be guided by our desire to assemble an AFLC with members from a variety of disciplines and colleges, as well as with various years of teaching experience.
This program is funded and managed by the Center for Teaching and Learning.
