CTE & CFL Communities:

CTE and CFL share a goal of cultivating intentional communities that enhance professional development, leadership, and pedagogical and technological innovation. We provide resources and support for all of these existing communities and encourage faculty and campus leaders to create additional communities that promote collaboration across disciplines.

The ALTC: Applied Learning and Teaching Community

One of the most dynamic teaching communities on campus stems from UNCW's QEP project: ETEAL. The ALTC is sponsored by CTE, CFL, and ETEAL. Led by long-serving Faculty Associates who selflessly serve on the Advisory Board of ETEAL. With rotating Faculty Fellows, the ALTC offers workshops, conducts grant-funded research, and helps to foster Applied Learning pedagogies and projects throughout the university. For more Applied Learning resources and more about The Applied Learning and Teaching Community, see the ALTC.

Book Circle Communities

Every semester, CFL creates approximately eight book circles, each of which functions independently and focuses on professional development or teaching-related topic. Stop by Randall 2038 to preview copies of the books. For more information and to sign up, visit Book Circles.

University-Wide Mentoring Community

University-wide mentoring is designed to provide support and consultation for faculty outside of their academic disciplines. Experienced faculty mentor new faculty and any faculty member may request mentorship. For more information Contact the CTE and CFL directors.

Scholarship Support Group

The scholarship support community offers faculty members university-wide resources and informed and helpful peer group to encourage scholarly publication. To join the scholarship support community visit Randall 2038 or contact your CTE and CFL directors.

Research Educator's Applied Learning Collaborative (REAL-C)

REAL-C is a group that seeks to bring current, past, and future research methods instructors from across campus together. Faculty with varying degrees of experience are welcome and encouraged to participate. If you are interested in joining this group or you would like more information, please contact Kristin Bolton.

NextUp Leadership Development Fellows

NextUp is a competitive program that invites applications from faculty at all ranks for a year-long immersion in developing their potential as leaders in academic settings. NextUp Fellows gain exposure to leadership principles and theories through eight modules on everything from university structure and systems to project management. To complete the program, Fellows must design and complete their own leadership development projects.

Leadership Discussion Communities

CFL provides resources and meeting space for groups of campus leaders who read and discuss influential texts on transformational and innovative leadership. To form a new leadership discussion community, contact your CTE and CFL directors.
