What's a Faculty Interest Group (FIG)?In a faculty interest group (FIG), faculty across disciplines meet to explore a common interest and share concerns and best practices.
How often do FIGs meet?Generally, FIGs meet monthly though they may meet more frequently if participants want to. Meeting times are coordinated by the faculty facilitators, who represent a variety of departments and who try to accommodate all interested faculty.
When can I join?You can join a FIG anytime. Meetings are posted on the KCTL calendar, and KCTL sends weekly emails to all faculty listing events scheduled for the following week.What kind of commitment do I have to make?There is no initial commitment, but it is often the case that faculty who meet through FIGs develop collaborative projects that go beyond the FIG meetings.What FIGs are being offered this semester?The following FIGS are being offered this semester.
