Transforming Teaching and Learning Across the Disciplines via a Faculty Learning Community Project (Innovative Practice)

Tuesday, January 19 | 3:45PM–6:00PM | Governor's Ballroom Foyer (fourth floor)
Session Type: Professional Development
This poster session will highlight some of the specific issues associated with efforts to employ technology-enhanced active learning in both large- and small-enrollment courses in several disciplines. We will describe a multidisciplinary faculty learning community (FLC) that was created as part of an effort to stimulate campus-wide awareness of and participation in a reexamination of pedagogical practices within a general education curriculum. We will also showcase some of the Web 2.0 tools used to increase active and engaged learning.
