Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning

The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL) promotes the professional growth and development of faculty as teachers and as scholars of teaching and learning. It cultivates a public dialogue about teaching and learning across disciplinary lines and strives to build a professional community among teachers at Rhode Island College. The FCTL serves faculty at every stage of their professional lives in order to support a campus-wide culture committed to inclusive excellence in teaching and learning. The FCTL is by faculty, for faculty. We offer opportunities for faculty members to talk about what they are doing, share strategies and stories, and learn about various teaching pedagogies including active/engaged learning, online teaching and new teaching –related technologies. In addition, the FCTL offers support for designing courses, syllabi, class discussions, assignments and assessments of learning outcomes.
