Fall 2021

Learning Circles are small communities of faculty that meet on a regular basis during a single semester. Each community reads a particular book or set of articles on learning and teaching and discusses the book during their sessions. Learning Circles are open to all full-time and adjunct faculty. All participants receive a Certificate of Participation for their Faculty Portfolio. Books are provided to each participant by the Office of Teaching and Learning.
