What is the Faculty Learning Communities Program?
The Faculty Learning Communities Program houses the Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) that are offered at Ferris State University. A faculty learning community is a discipline-based or interdisciplinary group of faculty (6-15 participants, generally) that focuses on a specific teaching and learning theme, issue, problem, pedagogy, etc. over an extended period of time (a few weeks to one or more semesters). Each FLC has one or more facilitators who design or co-design with participants a curriculum (if you will) that guides the learning and work of the participants. In most FLCs, participants also produce or create a specific work that is related to the FLC’s focus.
