From 2012-2017, the Professional Learning Communities (PLC) were sponsored by the Learning Innovation and Networked Knowledge (LINK) Research Lab and the Office of the Provost. Starting Academic Year 2017-2018, the PLCs are a part of the University of Texas at Arlington’s Quality Enhancement Plan. For more information on the call for applicants and new program details, please visit http://www.uta.edu/qep/index.php. Please contact Dr. Andrew Clark, QEP Director, if you would like more information or if you would like to apply to be part of the Collaborate UTA PLC.
Faculty and staff selected for the program work together in themed communities under the guidance of a facilitator to explore and implement strategies, activities, and projects that improve the learning experience at UTA. Collaboration takes place through on-campus and online sessions among the group members and with national and international leaders in educational technology. Participants have the opportunity to funnel their experiences and insights gained back to their colleagues locally by presentations and discussions at conferences and workshops. Each participant plans, conducts, and evaluates a project based on the group theme.
If you have questions about the PLC program at large, please contact Justin T. Dellinger.
