What's a Teaching Circle?

Teaching Circles serve as a space where faculty can gather to share experiences and discuss what's happening in their classrooms. These recurring, casual meetings are coordinated and facilitated by CNDLS, yet oriented around topics of faculty interest.

These circles incorporate the substantive engagement and peer mentorship of a faculty learning community (FLC)—an entirely faculty-arranged and driven model of development—while allowing CNDLS staff to offer resources and guide conversation. Teaching Circles draw on faculty expertise, while relieving faculty of the need to initiate, coordinate, and drive the meetings. Teaching circles are inherently interdisciplinary, creating cross-campus community and intellectual pollination.
