An FLC is a cohort or topic-based community of practice that give support, feedback, and encouragement to a small group of selected participants. As part of the FLC, participating faculty members pursue a project of choice - either individually or as a group - that results in improving student outcomes.

Threshold Concepts in the Teaching of Writing is a set of essential skills for mastering a discipline/major and for adopting the worldview of the profession. Threshold concepts can be a useful framework for teaching writing across disciplines.

This FLC is open to all writing intensive faculty, faculty who teach writing, and faculty interested in teaching a writing intensive version of their course.

The FLC will meet on Wednesdays, 1 PM - 2:30 PM beginning January 26 to February 23. Between March 9 and May 4, the FLC will meet biweekly on Wednesdays, 1 PM - 2:30 PM.

Faculty participants receive a stipend of $500 on completion of the program. This FLC may meet in-person or on Zoom based on which option the majority of applicants choose in their application.
