Session 1 (9:30 - 10:45 am)
During the Translating Teaching: Projects and Innovations session, FLC members from the Learning Matters!, Online Learning, and PASO Learning Communities will explain what each Community was about and how each was set up, demonstrate a technique learned or used in the classroom, and provide attendees with a ‘take-away’ resource or two, followed by a Q & A to allow presenters to answer specific questions.
Session 2 (11- 12 pm)
During the Translating What we Learned into Building Community, The Compassion, Faculty- Faculty Relationships and Palliative Care FLC members will share their experiences with building community; in addition, several hands on activities will be discussed. The Compassion FLC will share what they learned – of course, that compassion is all about connection, about being present to and concerned with other and ourselves. They will talk about lessons learned in the FLC that can be applied to our larger CSUSM community, and offer a couple of compassion practices that participants can take with them! The Palliative Care and the Veterans Faculty Learning Community will share how palliative care is able help the military, and it will conduct a “loss exercise” for the audience to experience the challenges that our veterans are facing. The FLC in Building and Strengthening Faculty to Faculty Relations will provide an overview of the projects and proposals they are planning to complete regarding academic freedom and supporting and creating a more collaborative climate across the campus community.
Lunch 12 -12:45 pm
