Faculty Learning Communities

The USG Faculty Learning Community (FLC) project provides an opportunity for faculty and staff from USG institutions to enhance their understanding of a topic related to teaching and learning. The 2016-17 FLCs focused on Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) and included fifteen faculty and staff participants. The topic for the 2017-18 FLC is Service-Learning and is comprised of 30 faculty and staff, divided into two groups based on their particular areas of interest. Following a kickoff meeting where the basics of FLCs and the topic at hand are explored, the FLCs meet virtually via Webex on a regular basis.

The ”CRAYOLA” group chose to produce a “Service Learning Handbook” as a resource for USG Institutions seeking information about Service Learning for their campus. The “Service Learning Handbook” is available for downloading here.
