Enhancing Classroom Teaching by Incorporating Technology
What are Faculty Learning Communities?
The ITLE seeks to establish Professional Learning Communities at CNU to facilitate growth and development and energize CNU stakeholders by participating in and contributing to the professional growth of their peers, creating an environment where self-directed lifelong learning is cherished, and where this noble objective may be achieved through collaborative and collegial community learning. The ITLE envisions that at CNU, Professional Learning Communities will be operationalized through faculty and student partnership, forming Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) and Student Learning Communities (SLCs) respectively.
FLC Long-term Goals
The ITLE, by offering and facilitating faculty learning communities (FLCs) centered around topics relevant to faculty at all Colleges within the University, hopes to develop a community of practice that will engage educational scholars in identifying and implementing best practices across the educational continuum. Faculty enrolling in this and subsequent FLCs will be encouraged to participate in this community and provide feedback to the FLC program and ITLE regarding application and outcomes related to FLC topics.
FLC Focus – Technology-assisted Teaching and Learning
Offered by the CNU ITLE, this summer 2019 Faculty Learning Community will help build expertise in the use and assessment of technology-assisted teaching and/or distance learning techniques in existing courses at CNU. The two-hour FLC sessions will be led by CNU faculty with expertise in these areas and will be held five times spanning the spring and summer semesters. Faculty from different disciplines are encouraged to participate. The sessions are open to all CNU faculty, full time, part time and adjunct. We especially welcome new faculty members.
