Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning Advisory Council
FCTL Advisory Council members support implementation of the Center’s mission and serve as liaisons between the instructional community and the FCTL. A council member is selected from each college and represents the interests and needs of that college when planning FCTL faculty development activities. Additionally, members promote participation in FCTL events by their college faculty and encourage their use of Center resources. Each member serves a two-year term, and terms are staggered across colleges.
In addition to their role in the overall FCTL agenda, Advisory Council members engage in individual projects that are supported by the Center. For example, they may lead a discussion group of faculty from their college that focuses on pedagogical issues specific to their disciplines or a discussion group of multidisciplinary faculty who focus on a single topic related to teaching and learning. Council members also could lead a faculty reading group on a book related to higher education.
