FACULTY LEARNING COMMUNITIES

The Faculty Learning Communities (FLC's) are multidisciplinary and emphasize faculty and staff learning through community building and action-research. The FLC participants are engaged in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning as they pose problems about learning issues, use appropriate methods to study the problem and apply their findings to their teaching practice. The FLC participants will share their research findings through peer review, public conferences, and publications. The following First Year Report (2016-17) and Powerpoint (2017-18)captures the ground-up, community-building approach to faculty learning through the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) across Pratt’s schools, departments, and disciplines.
