The Center for Teaching Excellence aims to support Xavier faculty in creating rich, collaborative learning environments that challenge our students intellectually, morally, and spiritually. The Center will promote effective teaching that is reflective, engaging, creative, and informed by both pedagogical and disciplinary knowledge.

Call for Applications to define a Faculty Learning Community

The CTE is soliciting applications to define new FLCs for 2015-2016. Either one or a pair of faculty facilitators may propose topics. The FLCs should be topic-based and not primarily cohort-based. For guidelines, please click here.

The FLCs will meet for one year and can begin in either August 2015 or January 2016.The CTE Faculty Advisory Committee members will evaluate and select successful proposals.

We anticipate that in addition to FLCs selected through this process, there will be FLCs designated for core-related topics.
