IDEAL Pedagogy Learning Communities
Open to primary instructors (faculty, lecturer, and graduate)
IDEAL Pedagogy Learning Communities (IPLCs) take place for six consecutive weeks during each quarter of the year (including summer) to help instructors grow as educators and individuals.
The learning community is organized around the IDEAL Pedagogy Canvas course and includes asynchronous work, as well as synchronous time with other instructors to share ideas, address questions, and apply what is learned. Participating instructors should plan to commit three to four hours per week on learning community activities. The format of the learning community (in-person, or virtual), is determined by majority participant preference that quarter.
Through active participation and completion of all activities, participants will make progress towards all six learning goals of the IDEAL Pedagogy program and feel supported and confident in making IDEAL changes to their course design and instruction.
Instructors who complete all learning community activities and participate in all live sessions can receive a CTL completion certificate as evidence of teaching development.
