FACULTY ASSOCIATES FOR CAMPUS ENGAGEMENT (Faculty Learning Communities)
Interested in connecting with your WCU colleagues? Hoping to meet others with similar teaching, learning, scholarship, or engagement interests? Looking for advice on teaching or research?The Faculty Associates for Campus Engagement (FACE) program is a faculty and professional learning community program designed to provide peer mentorship and collaboration opportunities for faculty, staff, and graduate students. Specifically, FACE enables participants to gain cross-disciplinary connections, scholarly advice, and insights from experienced faculty and staff members. FACE is designed to help match faculty and staff members' expertise with colleagues' interests. The learning community experience is an opportunity to connect with colleagues about topics in teaching, learning, scholarship, and engagement and to think collaboratively about students and practice.
FACE Groups are led by Associates who facilitate 6-15 faculty and staff members to develop a topic and related activities of interest during the semester. Groups meet as often as Associates or the group feels appropriate. Together, each group creates a community to learn about and support its topic.
