The Robert and Mary Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center serves as a catalyst for promoting a culture of teaching excellence at Grand Valley State University.  Rooted in a liberal education tradition and informed by the scholarship of teaching and learning, we advocate innovative teaching and student-centered pedagogies.  We partner with faculty as they prepare students to contribute meaningfully to their professions and societies.

Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) bring faculty together to explore a topic of mutual interest and apply the knowledge gained through this 1-2 semester-long collaborative dialogue.

We are looking for faculty to lead and participate in FLCs in the Winter 2020 semester. What are YOU interested in? What are YOU passionate about?  Propose an FLC topic via our Online Letter of Intent form.  Visit our Current Faculty Learning Communities webpage to see what sorts of things faculty are exploring together this semester--you may be inspired.
