Description/Abstract

Distinction through Discovery, FAU’s Quality Enhancement Plan, is an initiative designed to improve student learning through undergraduate research and inquiry experiences. These experiences emphasize both curricular and co-curricular opportunities. A grant program will be implemented in Fall 2013 to encourage curricular revisions towards these goals. To support development of pedagogically sound, research-focused curricular modifications we have established a Faculty Learning Community (FLC). Seven modules were developed to include institutional best practices and resources, pedagogies and active learning experiences, and strategies for gauging effective teaching and learning. The structure and plan for implementation of this FLC will be discussed.
