The Center for the Advancement of Teaching invites applications for the 2019-20 Curriculum Design & Assessment Faculty Learning Community (FLC). This year-long FLC is designed to support members of the Wake Forest community who are working on revising or creating new curricula; seeking ways to revise and improve the measures of student learning; and/or using evidence of student learning at the programmatic level to continually improve program structures and outcomes. Using best-practices in curriculum design and assessment, participants will be supported in their efforts to identify specific curricular and/or assessment needs and goals; develop a customized, targeted plan for their program; and produce a scholarly deliverable that showcases the processes followed and outcomes achieved.
The FLC will be led by Anita McCauley, Assistant Director of Curriculum Development and STEM Programing in the CAT. Ideal participants in this FLC are faculty members empowered by their departments or programs to work on curriculum and assessment and may include department or program chairs, associate chairs, or members of curriculum and/or assessment committees. Participants will meet regularly to learn about best practices, support each other’s efforts, and work step-by-step through the design and assessment processes.
To support this work, each participant will receive a $1000 stipend and book.
The goals of this FLC are two-fold:
Participants will be expected to:
The FLC is designed to meet biweekly throughout the Fall and Spring Semesters, leading to approximately 12 sessions during the 2019-2020 academic year.

To support this work, participants will read selected book chapters and scholarly works and will discuss ideas, challenges, processes and products, and opportunities with their peers.
