Faculty Learning Communities

In addition to workshops and conferences, the Center for the Advancement of Teaching coordinates and facilitates Faculty Learning Communities (previously referred to as Teaching Circles) on a number of teaching topics. Each learning community consists of a selective interdisciplinary cohort of faculty who will engage in an active, collaborative program to enhance teaching and learning at Temple University.

The deadline to submit applications for the 2016 Faculty Learning Communities has passed.
