Faculty learning community leaders needed; May 15 deadline


The Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation (OTEI) seeks the University’s 2021-22 academic year faculty learning community leaders. These leaders will assist faculty who wish to explore methods of incorporating new, evidence-based ideas into their teaching practice.

The program, now in its fourth year, helps teachers navigate difficult teaching situations.

Interested faculty are asked to submit the following by the May 15 deadline to

  • A letter of intent
  • A topic proposal and a rationale for how their topic supports the ClemsonForward strategic plan
  • A note of support from their college associate dean or department chair; an email is acceptable
  • A curriculum vitae

At Clemson, the FLC program is organized by topic and is interdisciplinary in membership. Participants meet about every three weeks. The leader and participants agree on shared common readings and resources, invite speakers, and support each other in the implementation of a targeted change in each teaching practice, in the spirit of trying out something new. 

 Selected faculty learning community leaders will receive $1500 in professional development funding.
