Communities of Practice

Faculty learning communities

A faculty learning community (FLC) provides a space for faculty members to collaborate in a professional environment to work toward a common goal through collective responsibility, accountability, and progress. With collaboration and partnerships, FLCs engage members in scholarly teaching, shared learning, and reflection to further integrate community-engaged pedagogy in their learning initiatives.

The Center for Service and Learning has offered past communities of practice to support faculty and staff promoting service learning and civic engagement throughout the IU Indianapolis campus. Learn more about our current and past communities of practice below.
