Faculty Learning Communities

Faculty Learning Communities are interdisciplinary groups of faculty devoted to exploring a specific area of teaching.  Typically learning communities meet 4 times a semester and work toward a goal, product, or publication. Contact us if you have ideas for learning communities.

New Faculty Learning Community

This learning community is for untenured, full-time faculty at ETSU.

The new faculty learning community is designed to give new faculty an opportunity to get to know other faculty in a variety of disciplines. The goal of the community is to help new faculty become more aware of the services and supports in the areas of teaching, research and service at ETSU.  Further, the learning community will provide guidance and encouragement regarding teaching and publication. To join, contact Amy Johnson.

Engaging Students Beyond the Classroom

This learning community, led by Teresa Brooks Taylor, will help faculty integrate service and community engagement into their courses. This FLC will begin by helping faculty develop learning outcomes for service-oriented classes, identify and develop community partners, and build assignments to assess student learning in the community. This community will meet on Tuesdays at 10:00 am on September 11th, October 2nd, and November 13th. Participation will continue in the spring term. Register Here!
