Participants' perceptions of the Faculty Online Learning Community (FOLC) experience
written by Melissa H. Dancy, Alexandra C. Lau, Joel C. Corbo, Charles R. Henderson, and Andy Rundquist
We report on a new model of educational reform, Faculty Online Learning Communities (FOLCs), that are based on providing and nurturing virtual communities of support for faculty engaged in learning about and implementing research-based teaching techniques. Data collected to date indicate that the FOLC model increases participants' willingness to try new techniques, helps build their confidence to work through difficulties, increases their level of reflection about their teaching, and is viewed by participants as a positive experience that is worthy of their time. We conclude that this model is a promising addition to reform efforts built on standard Development and Dissemination (D&D) models of change.
