Faculty Learning Communities registration

The Center for Teaching and Learning is sponsoring seven faculty learning communities for the 2007–2008 academic year. An FLC consists of six to 12 faculty from different disciplines who agree to meet about every three weeks to consider a topic of mutual interest and to learn from each other.

At the end of the academic year, the FLC will have the opportunity to offer the larger UGA community conclusions regarding its topic at a general forum.

Topics for the coming academic year are: “Academic Upcycling: Improving Student Scholarship through Assignment Design,” “Collaborative Learning: Class Environments that Value Cooperation over Competition,” “Digital Storytelling,” “Feminist and Anti-Racist Teaching as Praxis,” “Integrating Qualitative Data Analysis Tools into Qualitative Research and Teaching,” “Service-Learning: Supporting Student Engagement and Faculty Research” and “Visual Thinking: New Strategies for Using Visual Material in the Digital Era.”

FLC registration closes April 20. More information for each community is available online (
