The AFLC offers adjunct faculty the opportunity to connect and build community with their peers across campus while examining ways to increase student success. 3-4 sessions are offered each fall term.
The Adjunct Faculty Learning Community centers around two goals:
To meet these two goals, we'll host four sessions throughout the term that will allow us to connect, learn, and explore Canvas tips. Topics change each term, so please email the Center for Teaching & Learning to learn more at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Designing for Equity course supports FLC faculty in developing a high-quality, equitable, online learning experience for students. Explore topics around the backward design of curriculum, 21st-century assessment approaches, instructional technology integration, and other best practices in DE teaching and learning.

Learn how to apply critical digital pedagogy to existing courses. Critical digital pedagogy helps us redesign our digital learning spaces with a focus on inclusion and equity to help students become empowered learners and have full access to success in their learning.
This opportunity is only available to faculty who have completed Designing for Equity (formerly Designing for Impact).
4-week course offered each summer; request to enroll by July 9.
Digital accessibility is not just a legal requirement under ADA laws; it is an FLC priority because it provides equitable access to learning environments and materials for all students. The Digital Accessibility Committee has established a training course for faculty and staff to ensure they know to create accessible materials in their course or office.
All employees at FLC are enrolled in the Digital Accessibility 2.0 course, so you can easily find it on your Canvas dashboard!

EPIC Teaching supports faculty as they empower their pedagogy and ignite change in their classrooms. As EPIC participants, faculty conduct research and apply evidence-based strategies to innovate their teaching. If you're ready to take your instruction to the next level, EPIC is for you!
Offered each spring and fall term. Dates TBD.
Topics align with one of these areas of focus:
Faculty can choose from two tiers or complete both consecutively.
With specific goals and relevant strategies, faculty conduct research, EPIC participants conduct research and apply evidence-based strategies to innovate their teaching. This tier requires participants to submit a data-informed reflection on their goals for the project, the strategy implemented, and the outcomes related to student success.
Tier 1 process:
Faculty use the research they have conducted in Tier 1 to empower change within their community. Participants can choose between leading a campus workshop on their chosen topic or mentoring a small group of faculty around evidence-based teaching practice. This tier requires the participant to write a white paper on the topic, leading to publication.
TIER 2 PROCESS:
The online application to EPIC Teaching will be sent to faculty at the beginning of each fall and spring term. To get started, complete the EPIC Teaching Proposal or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Faculty will receive a stipend for participation.
Once accepted to the program, EPIC faculty systematically design their project, goals, metrics, and implementation schedule with support from their peers in the cohort and with CTL staff. Participants explore and integrate evidence-based learning strategies in their target course(s).
Grab the M.I.C. is a professional development opportunity to explore how to actively support first-year student success. In our 3-workshop series (one per month), we discuss topics, barriers, and strategies on how to:
3-session series offered each spring term.
Each in-person session will focus on one of the three topics in this series and provide an opportunity to collaborate, participate in critical and reflective dialogue about learning, and practice new skills in a supportive environment. Please make sure that you are available to attend all three sessions before enrolling in this series.
Another component of this program is teaming up with thought partners (pairs or trios) to meet once after each session and dive more deeply into your courses' topics, strategies, and applications. You might find value in teaming up with a person or two from your department, or you might consider cross-disciplinary conversations. We are happy to help set you up with a thought partner. If you want us to do that, reach out to us!
The final requirement of this program is completing a self-assessment report on professional growth, implementation of course design & teaching strategies, and impacts on student success.
Walk through all essential functions of Canvas, FLC's learning management system, or LMS. A companion tutorial for students, Passport to Canvas, is where students can learn how to succeed with Canvas in their courses. Harness the potential of Canvas and enroll now!
