Peer-To-Peer Engagement

Faculty Learning Community

Join a community of faculty colleagues to explore pedagogies and learning environments that may
contribute to the development and mastery of twenty-first century competencies and skills and advance
the quality of learning for today’s students. This Faculty Learning Community (FLC) will present a
conceptual and practical overview of a variety of evidence-based practices. Evidence-Based Practices are
classroom pedagogies demonstrated through well-designed research studies to positively impact student
learning and narrow achievement gaps in the classroom.                                                       

                                                    

Reading Circles

A READing circle is a small self-regulated group of faculty and staff who meet once a month for fifty (50) minutes to discuss a common reading.  

Open Classroom

The Open Classroom is just as it sounds.  A faculty member volunteers to open his/her classroom on a day of his/her choosing and allows another colleague to observe.  Observing an open classroom provides a way to learn about the innovative teaching strategies other faculty on campus are using. 

Walk & Talk

A Walk &Talk meeting works exactly like it sounds. This meeting is an offshoot of a wellness initiative from Jackie Rodriguez's office, The Wellness Center.  "It's a chance for teams to get away from their desks, on their feet, and into some different scenery to inspire new ideas and creative solutions."
