Faculty Learning Communities

The Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning sponsors several faculty learning communities that bring together various groups of faculty and graduate students from across campus to engage in active and collaborative programming for the purpose of enhancing teaching and learning.



Let's take some time to talk about assessment! Join the Assessment Faculty Learning Community for engaging conversations and to think with your peers about assessment for student learning at UW.

Allies to Accomplices

This Learning Community is designed to build a community of educators desiring, or already committed, to supporting students with disabilities in the classroom.  This Learning Community is a collaboration between Disability Support Services (DSS) and the Ellbogen Center for Teaching & Learning (ECTL).

Collaborative Communication

In our hectic schedules, we often do not take the time to slow down to reflect on and think together about our work. The ECTL has been hosting an informal collaborative communication (CC) group for the past four years that does just that.

New Faculty

Meet other new faculty from a variety of disciplines, discuss best practices in teaching and learning, share resources and attend social events. Past participants have found these learning communities valuable for improving their teaching practices as well as creating community with others.

Graduate Teaching Assistants

GTAs are experts in their field of study but may need support honing their understanding of teaching and learning. In this learning community we will introduce recent research articles regarding Graduate Teaching Assistants to gain further insight into this role.

There have been many innovations in education. We have moved from classrooms to Zoom and back again. We have learned to teach  effectively in synchronous and asynchronous, online environments. We have explored and implemented active, team-based, collaborative, project-based, problem-based pedagogy in our classrooms, increasing students’ engagement and learning. We have learned how games and game theory can be used to increase student engagement in class materials. In short, we have transformed education in many ways. How else might we inspire ourselves and our students? What else might we explore?
