Abstract

A faculty learning community engages in active, collaborative programs featuring “a curriculum about enhancing teaching and learning with frequent seminars and activities that provide learning, development, the scholarship of teaching, and community building” (Cox, 2004, p. 8). Researchers in this study developed a faculty learning community of instructors interested in learning how to improve their online teaching skills and their knowledge of technology. This presentation features best practices and lessons learned throughout the development and implementation of this learning community. Plans for ongoing efforts based on lessons learned will also be presented.
