Teaching in an Active Learning Classroom Faculty Learning Community

Instructors who are new to teaching in an Active Learning Classroom (ALC) often have questions about how to increase student learning in the space. In this Faculty Learning Community (FLC), participants will join fellow instructors in a year-long cohort where they will explore instructional approaches and course design strategies to make the most of these classrooms. FLC participants will learn discipline-appropriate practices for teaching in an ALC from Center for Educational Innovation staff and experienced U of M colleagues who have successfully taught in these spaces. Participants will attend six meetings throughout the year, observe experienced faculty teaching in an ALC, and reflect on their own teaching. With assistance from facilitators from the CEI and our University partners, they will design or modify curriculum to increase learning in these unique classrooms. Participants will be eligible for $500 in professional development funds upon successful completion of the program.   Registration for this program is now closed.   Please contact CEI if you would like a consulation on this topic.
