"Faculty Learning Communities support collaboration, innovation, lifelong learning and, perhaps most importantly, create time and space apart from a hectic work week, allowing faculty time to reflect on their work and incorporate their learning into their classrooms to improve student learning.” Jane Lister Reis, faculty and FLC facilitator, North Seattle Community College
For the past several years, the Washington State Board of Community and Technical College has funded rounds of Faculty Learning Community (FLC) grants. Grants of up to $5,000 are available for groups who want to meet, research, and share around a common topic. FLCs provide a structure that supports learning of any topic – instructional technologies, cultural competency, the scholarship of teaching and learning – which is necessary to keep faculty up-to-date with changes in the demographics of their students and the culture of higher education.
