Davis FLC

Faculty Learning Community Grants use funding through the Davis Grant for Integrative Learning to promote small group collaboration and learning. It awards stipends of $1000 to each participant in a team of 3-5 faculty, called a “learning community”*.

An FLC is a group of 3-5 faculty from different disciplines engaging in an active collaborative program of inquiry around enhancing teaching and learning with emphasis on community building, development of high impact practices, integrative learning, and/or scholarship. For example, FLCs may focus on incorporating undergraduate research, problem-based learning, global perspectives, or some other high impact practices (HIPs) into courses or academic programs. FLCs may also focus on some other form of integrative learning.

Goals

  • Increase opportunities for integrative learning for WSU faculty
  • Increase opportunities for integrative learning for WSU students
  • Increase number of HIPs available for students to experience
  • Increase opportunites for faculty to engage in scholarship related to teaching and learning (SoTL)

*Learning communities funded by the FLC grants are comprised of small teams of faculty & are not connected to specific courses. This is quite separate from the learning communities created in linked/integrated courses, which are funded by the collaborative teaching (CTG) program.
