The issues and opportunities to address in an FLC are usually determined by the institution’s (faculty or administration) need to establish this FLC. Thus the FLC facilitator’s role is to determine, in consultation first with the FLC Program Director and then with this FLC’s participants, how best to address the opportunities and issues for the FLC.
Returning to the above example of an FLC on PBL, once the FLC Program Director has established that this FLC will be offered and the participants are selected, they will want to determine with their facilitator the best ways for them to investigate, practice, and evaluate the use of PBL in their classes.
Here is a sample yearlong with a list of specific topics and presenters.
