Jump into the online learning conversation! In its third year, the Faculty Learning Community (FLC) continues to be a forum that enables educators to discuss lots of online-education topics and a resource that demonstrates tools and technologies to support teaching and learning.
No matter what level of experience you’ve had with online learning, FLC can bring you up to speed and keep you on top of the latest technology and news. The discussions are held online 1-2 p.m. most Fridays with your colleagues Joni Dunlap from the Center for Faculty Development and associate professor in the School of Education and Human Development, Brian Yuhnke, instructor/tech and media production coordinator in Academic Technology and Extended Learning, and Storm Gloor, assistant professor in Music and Entertainment Industry Studies in the College of Arts and Media.
Each week a different topic is covered, so it’s easy to join in the conversation even if you missed the previous week or if it’s your first time to attend. You can come online with questions, too. The discussion is laid back and everyone taking part is eager to assist you. Send a request to Yuhnke to be added to the email list and receive an email early in the week, then a reminder the morning of the forum.
Co-sponsored by CU Online and the Center for Faculty Development, the FLC is also an opportunity to connect with colleagues using Adobe Connect, an easy-to-use synchronous web conferencing tool available to faculty free-of-charge.
It’s easy to join the conversation – or if you’re not feeling chatty to simply view the conversation. Here’s how:
If you are new to using Connect and have questions or have trouble accessing the conference, contact Yuhnke at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions about FLC, Connect or anything else prior to taking part, you can also contact Gloor at email@example.com. Hope to “CU” online at the FLC!
