Faculty who participate in Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) report increases in student engagement and student achievement. 

A few of the advantages and benefits of Faculty Learning Communities:

  • Stimulate innovation and create experiential, collaborative learning environments.
  • Increase collaboration and make the best use of limited funding.
  • Provide a flexible professional development structure to support learning of any topic — instructional technology, cultural competency, the scholarship of teaching and learning — necessary to keep faculty up-to-date with changes in student demographics and an evolving higher education culture.
  • Increase communication and collaboration among faculty who, by the nature of their work in individual classrooms, are often isolated from colleagues.
