What is a Faculty Interest Group?
A Faculty Interest Group (or FIG) is a group of faculty / staff who want to explore a broad topic over the course of an academic year (or longer, if there is continued interest). Members of the FIG communicate throughout the academic year; possible forums include a Slack channel, Google Chat, or regularly scheduled Zoom meeting. In exchange for ongoing support from TTL, each FIG shares their topic with a wider group of faculty / staff. A workshop during Faculty Development Days or a Lunch & Learn are examples of appropriate ways of sharing the FIG’s “takeaways.”
Descriptions of current FIGs are below. For more information, or to propose a new FIG, email TTL.
