Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning Advisory Committee
The committee advises the Faculty Center director on how best to implement the center’s mission. Committee members also serve as liaison representatives between the instructional community and the Faculty Center. In this role members are expected to inform faculty in their colleges of services and programming at the FCTL as well as represent the interests and needs of faculty in their respected colleges.
FCTL faculty advisory members often sponsor a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) in their college or facilitate other multidisciplinary activities through the Faculty Center.
Faculty Learning Community activities include:
- Leading a Teaching Circle or regular discussion among faculty within a college who share common concerns and interests related to teaching.
- Hosting a seminar or luncheon discussion group which brings together a group of multidisciplinary faculty to focus on a single topic.
- Facilitating a Faculty Reading Group or discussion on a book that would be of interest to faculty on teaching and learning or higher education.
