Faculty Learning Communities

Blended Learning Course Redesign 

The Faculty Professional Development Program and the e-Learning Center are co-sponsoring a Faculty Learning Community on blended learning course redesign. This learning community will be facilitated by Drs. John Doherty of the e-Learning Center, Denise Helm of the Provost’s Office, and Larry Gallagher of the Faculty Professional Development Program.

Two orientation sessions are planned for mid-September. The purpose of the orientation session is to introduce attendees to the nature, format, and resources that will be a part of the learning community. It will provide the opportunity to make a decision about spring semester engagement with colleagues in this learning community. We encourage you to attend one of the orientation sessions to gain the information useful for you in making a decision about your participation:

Monday September 16, 2013 at 12 Noon
or
Wednesday September 18, 2013 at 2:00 pm

Both orientations will be held in the Faculty Professional Development Program Teaching Commons (Cline Library Room 169). Registration is now closed for this learning community.

This faculty learning community offers you the chance to meet regularly throughout Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 terms with a small, cross-disciplinary group (10-12 participants) to look at blended learning in an in-depth, ongoing, scholarly, and systematic way. The group will explore the research and experience of blended learning to design and implement their blended learning projects.

This community may also include participants from the faculty from the President's Technology Initiative and from the previously funded group who are currently piloting blended courses.

This Learning Community is being initiated as a collaboration between the Faculty Professional Development Program and the eLearning Center. 

This Community has already formed and is currently in progress.
