The Los Angeles Community Colleges’s Student Success Initiative Steering Committee invites you to participate in its 2016 Winter/Spring Faculty Teaching and Learning Academy(FTLA), part of our ongoing efforts to build a “Success Network” for the development of institutional cultures and environments that are learning-centered, technologically advanced, and culturally responsive.
Set to begin on January 13, 2016, the FTLA will feature presentations by expert college and university practitioners, as well as hands-on activities such as designing and scaffolding collaborative learning activities. It will emphasize creating syllabi that stimulate student motivation, increase critical thinking skills, and integrate support services and academic resources. FTLA enrollees may receive 3 units of course credit applicable to step/column advancement on the district salary scale as well as flex credit. Upon completion, a Board-issued certificate of achievement will be issued. Most importantly, FTLA graduates will establish long-lasting communities of practice with colleagues across the disciplines and the campuses of our district.
The Deadline to Apply is on or before November 30, 2015
If you need further information, contact Jessica Cristo, LA Regional Network Coordinator 213-891-2175, firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due to your Vice President of Academic Affairs on or before November 30, 2015.
