Adjunct Faculty Learning Community

Overview

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 homepage home page.
  • Have a Mid-Semester Assessment (MAP) conducted for a course they teach. Information on MAP’s can be found here.
  • Submit a brief reflection on a new teaching technique they attempted during the AFLC.

Adjunct Faculty who complete the above expectations by the last day of finals week will receive a $200 stipend.

Financial Support

Each participant who completes all portions for the AFLC will receive a $200 stipend.

Application Process and Deadline

All Boise State adjunct faculty are eligible to apply. To apply, complete this application form. Applications are due by August 30th, 2021, 9 AM.

Selection Criteria

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.

Sponsorship

This program is funded and managed by the Center for Teaching and Learning.
