EdeX Faculty Learning Communities Grant

The NTU EdeX Grant is designed to promote the development of strategies to enhance the quality of teaching and the student learning experience in NTU. Such grants are intended to foster a broader culture in the University that nurtures and supports that primary objective. The Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) Grant, a subset of the EdeX Grant, aims to bring together faculty across disciplines to engage in focused and sustained exploration of a shared idea, concept, or interest area that addresses current issues and strategies in NTU Education 2025.

An FLC is a peer-led community of faculty and staff specifically structured to provide a supportive environment where members work together to produce outcomes or products about teaching and learning. Members of such communities engage in scholarly practice, collaborating within a collegial framework that offers peer review and support, and developing the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Eligibility and Structure:

 

All full-time faculty member in NTU can apply for this grant as the Principal Investigator (PI). Members of the FLC can include both faculty and non-faculty members (e.g. professional staff, teaching assistant, undergraduate and postgraduate NTU students).

Once the FLC is approved and moves to the meeting stage, the PI who initiates the FLC will assume the role of a facilitator. Each FLC will should have one Principal Facilitator and at least one Co-Facilitator. The FLC facilitator plays an essential role in helping to create and sustain an environment that fosters genuine community, deep learning, and projects of significance among the members in the learning community.

The requisite size for an FLC is between 6 to 12 persons. We strongly encourage having a team composition comprising members from across multiple disciplines and at different levels and career stages.
