Under the Research Exposure Opportunities program, Research-Related Skills faculty learning communities (FLC) have been established to allow faculty from all disciplines to share ideas, problems and solutions around the development and/or implementation of their course.

To help faculty address specific questions and develop materials QEP courses, we are assembling in year-long faculty learning communities (FLCs) for specific QEP programs. An FLC is “a cross-disciplinary faculty and staff group of six to fifteen members (eight to twelve members is the recommended size) who engage in an active, collaborative, yearlong program with a curriculum about enhancing teaching and learning and with frequent seminars and activities that provide learning, development, the scholarship of teaching, and community building.” (Cox, 2004)
