A faculty learning
community (FLC) is a "cross-disciplinary faculty and staff group
... who engage in an active, collaborative yearlong program with
curriculum about enhancing teaching and learning and with frequent
seminars and activities that provide learning, development, the
scholarship of teaching, and community
building."[Cox & Richlin,2004] We are proposing a topic-based FLC
centered around pedagogy and materials for the science of
networks. The Duke Center for Instructional Technology has supported
FLCs at Duke in the past and have endorsed this project. They will
provide administrative support for the FLC.
Along with the goal of developing the modules of class materials and pedagogical tools, the faculty learning community also serves a number of other goals including: nourishing faculty interest in the scholarship of teaching and learning and undergraduate teaching and learning, in general; increasing faculty collaboration across disciplines; and a building a community across departments, schools, and universities through teaching and learning. To these ends, the fellowship gained by having these meetings will be a significant byproduct of these communities.
FLC for 2009-2010In the 2009-2010 academic year, we will added the following faculty:
FLC for 2007-2008In academic year 2007-2008, the faculty learning community will be comprised of:
Owen Astrachan Professor of the Practice of Computer Science and Director of Undergraduate Studies for Teaching and Learning, has agreed to serve as facilitator for the FLC. Prof. Astrachan has worked extensively with the Profs. Forbes and Rodger developing material on networks and has been charged with forging ties across disciplines to find ways in which computing can be viewed as relevant and engaging for students in the natural and social sciences.
