he Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) invites you to lead or join a learning community. These learning communities (variously called a learning circle, learning community, or community of practice depending upon the facilitator) consist of 5-10 faculty, staff, and/or students, often across academic disciplines, who are committed to inquiring into, discussing, and practicing classroom strategies in a supportive community of peers. Typically, they will meet twice monthly during the semester for discussion that is based on theory and praxis. Each learning community has an explicit and specific goal for advancing growth and development to positively impact teaching and learning.
CTL staff, often in collaboration with partners across the College and beyond, stand ready to support the participants in a variety of ways, depending on the needs of a particular learning community.
