A learning community is a group of faculty, staff, students and interested individuals who engage in activities that provide learning, pedagogy, and community. NMC is among many other colleges and universities who have created a vibrant culture of inquiry through LCs, and you’re invited to join! LCs typically meet four or five times each term. These groups are a great way to collaborate and share ideas with a variety of colleagues on campus. Each group has a small budget to work with and hours spent meeting with your group can be counted as professional development towards your Faculty Evaluation Plan. If you’d like to learn more about LCs at NMC, join an existing LC, or propose new group, please email Janet Lively (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ryan Bernstein (email@example.com).
