The literature on faculty learning communities suggests that 8-15 participants is an ideal number. As a result, we worked together with our facilitators to create cohorts of 8-15 faculty clustered within and around departments. Some large departments had multiple cohorts, some small departments were combined with adjacent disciplines, and we had 8 interdisciplinary cohorts. Participants were free to request a new cohort if they felt it was more appropriate for their teaching and learning needs.
You can learn more about who facilitated each cohort, when they were convened, and the themes of our interdisciplinary cohorts here.
