Fall 2017 Faculty Learning Community

The Fall 2017 Faculty Learning Community focused on continuing the discussion about Grit that was started at the Fall Faculty Forum in August. We had discussions around the three sections of Angela Duckworth's book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, and how Grit might be taught and assessed as an Institutional Learning Outcome. We met three times during the semester at lunch time (12:00 - 12:50 pm), and CTL provided light refreshments: September 29th (Part 1: What is Grit and Why it Matters) October 27th (Part 2: Growing Grit from the Inside Out) November 17th (Part 3: Growing Grit from the Outside In)
