Faculty persistence with research-based instructional strategies: a case study of participation in a faculty online learning community.
IJ STEM Ed 7, 21 (2020). link
The NGP Faculty Online Learning Community (FOLC) project has the goals of improved student outcomes in physical science courses for pre-service elementary teachers, through faculty development and course transformation, and contributing to the knowledge base on dissemination and educational transformation.
The NGP FOLC community of faculty is engaged in course transformation and continued professional development through the implementation of Next Gen PET and classroom research in the context of those courses. NGP FOLC consists of 50 faculty, structured in clusters that meet regularly via videoconference, communicate and collaborate using online tools, and meet in person at conferences and workshops. This community approach to faculty development and course transformation is an innovative alternative to typical dissemination approaches.
