                                                   endeavors.

Members try out collaborative technology with colleagues and in their
classrooms, gaining valuable feedback from both.
Information Literacy


                                         Member teams develop
                                         modules within specific
                                         fields of study for students
                                         to enhance their
                                         information literacy skills.




Linked with Bowling Green State University, and in a collaborative
effort between the Libraries and Faculty Professional
Development Centers at the two schools, this FLC is linked with a
larger Ohio Board of Regents Initiative that includes several other
Ohio institutions in sharing materials.
 Learning & Teaching Large Classes


                                                    This new FLC is
                                                    designed to enable
                                                    participants to explore
                                                    student learning in
                                                    large classes.




Drawing on the experiences of members, students, the growing
literature and research on teaching and learning in large classes, and
on students who learn in large classes in a diversity of disciplines, FLC
members develop individual projects tailored to their current teaching
assignments and that will have implications for other courses as well.

members of this learning community explore student perspectives and
share ideas for working with freshmen.

F-cubed brings together faculty and teaching assistants (TA’s) from
many disciplines to study teaching and learning and to discuss
improving the TA orientation program and the college teaching
course offered in various departments at KSU.

They are developing learning modules that can be used in courses
on college teaching.
Online Learning & Teaching




Learning Community members design individual projects to develop
and improve online and blended courses within the community
context.

As members try out their ideas in their classes the group provides
support, discussion, and feedback.

 Strategic Priorities:
2004-2005 –-- 2010
   WKSU: “our goal is to make your world a
    little more interesting.”



   Transforming the culture of teaching and
    learning at KSU: time, space, relationship
“New worlds new minds; between the yrs
   1999 and 2002 the total number of
 publications that had taken place in the
  history of publication before 1999 had
doubled, the next doubling took one and a
                  half yrs.
   Learning: Igniting Curiosity and fanning
    the flames – from curiosity to systematic
    self critical inquiry made public = research

   Number 1 principle of Learning: start
    where the learner is. With faculty
    development; with student learning.
   Finding the gold – uncovering – cultivating
    environments and standing out of the way
    – showing possibilities (Large classes;
    critical colleague groups)



   A change in the fpdc: 5 ½ years
“There is no substitute for genuine commitment
and commitment starts “at home”. No one should
be told to change their beliefs, or to adopt new
values, or to change deeply habitual ways of
doing things; efforts to employ coercive power to
bring about deep change invariably backfire.
Those who lead must be prepared to change
themselves first, rather than focusing on how
others must change.” Peter Senge

home is the toughest – and the only way it
works. Holding hands helps.
