Think Ahead to Fall
New Faculty Learning Community:
Intrinsic Motivation and Play for Learning
Call for Applications! Participate in a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) to investigate how intrinsic motivation (especially as experienced through games) can encourage students to demand more of themselves. $500 honorarium. Learn more and apply.
This year's FLC members loved the experience. As one said:
Of course I get some good ideas for my courses from the FLC, but I think the most valuable thing I gain from the FLC experience is meeting with other faculty on campus and learning from them how they handle different classroom situations, address new challenges, and their experiences with different learning/teaching techniques. It really is enjoyable to discuss teaching (using technology or otherwise) with a group of faculty who are passionate and engaged.
