The Faculty Learning Community (FLC) program is the focus of the University of Miami’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), which is part of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) accreditation requirements. The QEP development process revealed that effective use of digital technology and information literacy concepts is important for improving teaching and for preparing students for their futures. The University’s QEP proposes to enhance undergraduate learning through the creation of a program of Faculty Learning Communities. For the five-year initial period, the FLCs will be on the topic of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Literacy.
The ultimate outcome of the Revised QEP is an ongoing program of ICT-related FLCs that will give faculty members the knowledge, skills, and pedagogical support to improve their teaching and enhance the learning environment at the University.
