Lead Presenter: Kimberly Kenward (Grand Valley State University)
Co-presenter: Eric Kunnen (Grand Valley State University)
Brief Abstract: As more faculty are being asked to teach online, building capacity to support an ever increasing number of faculty is a significant challenge.  Faculty require opportunities to dialogue, support, and time to reflect on teaching. Faculty learning communities have transformed how Grand Valley State University is providing timely, and high quality professional development. This presentation describes how interdisciplinary faculty learning communities have been successfully implemented to build collegiality across the institutional while supporting online/hybrid instructors.
After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Analyze how FLCs can encourage interdisciplinary partnerships with faculty and other campus units (i.e. Instructional Designers, eLearning Instructional Technologists, Digital Media Developers,  University Libraries and Faculty Teaching & Learning Center)
  • Describe how using FLCs can strengthen and enhance the quality of online teaching and learning
  • Discover the benefits of building capacity through collegiality among faculty
  • Identify principles, methods, and takeaways that can be implemented at participant institutions
