The FTLC promotes a collaborative community of scholars to enhance teaching, learning, research and creative activity.

Fellows are the heart and soul of the FTLC.

Expectations for all FTLC fellows include:

  • Recruiting and connecting with other faculty about teaching, leading a faculty cohort/learning community, monthly meetings, providing periodic activity reports and participation at FTLC events.
  • Compensation for individual Fellows varies depending upon particular needs and situations. For example, previously compensation has taken the form of additional pay, course release or professional development funds.
