Faculty learning communities

Western Washington University uses a definition that describes how faculty learning communities function at NAU: A learning community “offers a cross-disciplinary group of 10-12 participants the opportunity to meet regularly to look at topics of shared interest in an in-depth, ongoing, scholarly and systematic manner. LC members delve into research and experiences in their common area of inquiry, then can design and pursue individual or group projects that require them to apply and test new ideas and information about student learning.”

Evidence shows that faculty learning communities provide effective “deep learning” that encourages and supports faculty to investigate, attempt, assess, and adopt new methods of teaching.  Join a faculty learning community to gain applicable skills unique to Northern Arizona University.
