Faculty Learning Community

The Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) sponsors a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) each semester that meets periodically during the semester to discuss practices and technologies related to teaching and learning. FLCs are open to all DSU faculty (full-time, part-time, and adjunct faculty members). CTL organizes FLC groups each fall and spring semester and provides drinks and light refreshments for FLC meetings.  Each member of the group is expected to participate in face to face meetings and contribute to the online portion of the community (via Canvas).

Fall 2017 Faculty Learning Community

The Fall 2017 Faculty Learning Community will focus on continuing the discussion about Grit that was started at the Fall Faculty Forum in August. We will have 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 will meet three times during the semester at lunch time (12:00 – 12:50 pm), and CTL will provide light refreshments:

Friday, September 29th (Part 1: What is Grit and Why it Matters)
Friday, October 27th (Part 2: Growing Grit from the Inside Out)
Friday, November 17th (Part 3: Growing Grit from the Outside In)

In addition to our face-to-face meetings, we will continue the discussion online through a Canvas course. If you would like to participate in this community, please sign up with the link below. Participation will be limited to 15 faculty.
