Teaching and Learning Forum
The Teaching and Learning Forum are creating a database to provide a space for faculty to connect with and learn from each other as we navigate virtual and online learning environments. Please contribute information to help us create a robust resource for faculty.
Communities of Practice are groups of faculty and staff who commit to regularly scheduled sessions on a focus area in teaching and learning followed by actions such as planning and trying out the techniques discussed in the group. Your community will provide a supportive environment where members can experiment with new approaches to teaching and learning, share successes and challenges, and/or engage in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) through collaborative research projects and dissemination of instructional practices and tools.
The Teaching and Learning Forum sponsors faculty/contract staff book groups each fall and spring semester. The list of titles is distributed to campus and posted on the website before the semester begins, and you are encouraged to select a first and second choice from the list. The TLF orders and distributes the books to each book group member. The TLF will also pay for a drink and a snack for each group member from Art Elements (up to $10.00/person) once during the semester.
Each month, the Teaching and Learning Forum publishes a newsletter full of helpful links and resources along varying themes each month. This year, we are following the over-arching theme of Take ACTION (adapt, collaborate, teach, innovate, observe, nurture).
