Faculty Learning Community
October 18 - 2:00pm – 3:00pm Library L144
The Office of Distance Learning is searching for faculty interested in joining a faculty learning community (FLC) this year. The focus of our first meeting will be to start the discussion for planning monthly meetings and faculty interests in topics beginning with “VoiceThread use to Engage Students”. The first meeting is in Utica, but we will make the session available via Blackboard Collaborate for any Albany faculty who would like to join this initial discussion. The plan is to offer learning communities on both campus locations on differing days once a month during the school year.

Most FLC’s comprise an interdisciplinary group of faculty devoted to enhancing teaching, learning, and the university experience. FLCs have been shown to provide a safe space for faculty to explore and implement new approaches, give and receive feedback, and generate a knowledge base accessible to the broader University community.

Simply put, an FLC is a community of practice devoted to exploring teaching and learning in higher education and we want you to join. If interested please fill out this short form to help us contact you.
