In this FLC, we will focus on several effective teaching and learning strategies. The adjunct FLC will meet four times over the fall semester, and adjunct faculty who attend all four sessions and successfully complete the deliverables will receive a $200 grant. The deliverables will be

  1. Revise at least one lecture to embed multiple, learning activities
  2. Revise one assignment for greater transparency of expectations
  3. Revise your syllabus for greater transparency as an aid to learning
