UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State faculty are invited to lead peer groups exploring how technology, combined with sound pedagogy, can improve teaching and learning.

Proposals are now being accepted for Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) for the upcoming academic year. Proposals are due Aug. 9. Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) offers this program on an annual basis in support of faculty who seek to understand and make use of educational technology. FLCs can be formed around myriad ideas including open educational resources, immersive experiences, data science and learning spaces.

Along with support from TLT, FLC leaders will receive funding that could cover items needed for meetings such as lunches, books, tech tools and guest speakers. Details covering roles and responsibilities of FLC leaders can be reviewed on the TLT website, and Marilyn Goodrich can be reached via email for more information.
