Faculty Learning Community
Early Career Faculty (Second-year Through Tenure-review Year)
The Early Career Faculty Learning Community (ECFLC) provides opportunities for Denison faculty (whether on the tenure track or not) between their second and sixth year to come together to discuss teaching and learning at Denison. We consider best practices and share ideas on everything from engaging students in the classroom to assessing their learning to crafting teaching philosophies. The goal is to foster a supportive and collaborative network for faculty development.
