Creating and Managing Successful Online Faculty Learning Communities, An Interview with Dr. Jennifer Goode - Jim and Beth Harger, Faculty Focus

In this episode, we sit down with Dr. Goode to discuss the opportunities provided by Faculty Learning Communities (FLC’s), an established method of small-group faculty development. She addresses the challenges in managing them, including participation, commitment, follow-through, and the ability focus on goals—all of which are magnified if the faculty members are geographically separated. She also shares with us many of the positive outcomes and benefits from FLC’s and how they can be implemented at any institution. One of the interesting things about this is the competitive application process to take part in the FLC’s. A Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is a cross-disciplinary faculty group of five or more members (8 to 12 is the recommended size).
