Brown Bag Lunch:  FLC

Have you ever seen notices about a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) forming and wondered what one does in an FLC?  An FLC forms a cross-disciplinary community that meets over a semester to explore individual interests regarding teaching and learning.  Please join Wendy Aronoff for an informational Brown Bag Lunch that describes CCRI’s FLC.   During this session you will have the opportunity to ask questions about how an FLC may benefit your work and hear from your colleagues about its benefits.  Please click here to register.

CITLA Spring Book Club

This spring CITLA will host a book club to discuss Teaching First-Year College Students written by Erickson et al.  Published in 2006, the book draws on the research and theory of learning, but its emphasis is on the practical application of these insights in the classroom.  We’ll read and discuss the book in sections on the Lincoln and Warwick campuses.   Please see the schedule below and please plan to join us for one or all of the discussions.  Click here to register.
