Building Faculty Learning Communities
Add to cart
US$ 29.00
Changing our colleges and universities into learning institutions has become increasingly important at the same time it has become more difficult.  Faculty learning communities have proven to be effective for addressing institutional challenges, from preparing the faculty of the future and reinvigorating senior faculty, to implementing new courses, curricula, and campus initiatives on diversity and technology. The results of faculty learning community programs parallel for faculty members the results of student learning communities for students, such as retention, deeper learning, respect for other cultures, and greater civic participation.

 The chapters in this issue of New Directions for Teaching and Learning describe from a practitioner's perspective the history, development, implementation, and results of faculty learning communities across a wide range of institutions and purposes. Institutions are invited to use this volume to initiate faculty learning communities on their campuses.

 This is the 97th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Teaching and Learning.
