This year SMU introduced a new kind of support for teaching excellence, the Faculty Learning Community. These small interdisciplinary groups focus on a topic, study it together, and use their findings to enhance their own classes. In addition, the group as a whole will share what they’ve learned with the entire SMU teaching community.
This year’s groups have begun to meet and are already generating great ideas.
Congratulations to the new FLC members:
