Faculty Learning Communities

The IDeL team facilitates a series of faculty learning communities focused on online and hybrid learning. These meetings take place once a month on the Allendale, Pew, and Health campuses. All faculty are invited to attend, whether they teach online and hybrid courses or not. For this semester's meeting dates and locations, see the faculty learning community page.
