A Learning Community (LC) is a group of faculty, staff, and other interested individuals who get together to investigate a question or pursue a topic of interest. They provide an opportunity for professional learning as well as a sense of 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!
If you’re interested in LCs at NMC, use the buttons below to view last years’s groups, join an existing LC, or propose a group. Facilitators from last year, please use click on the “Propose…” button if your group will continue this year.
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 have any questions about LCs please don’t hesitate to reach out to Kristen Salathiel or Ryan Bernstein.
