Faculty Center Update

The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL) is moving!  Starting Thursday evening April 4 and continuing all day on Friday April 5, the Dobbs Ferry FCTL Room will be offline.  We apologize for any inconvenience

 

Starting Monday April 8, the FCTL room will reopen in the Dobbs Ferry Library on the first floor behind the circulation desk. This is a temporary location. The new entrance to the FCTL room is accessed by turning left past the circulation desk, and turning left before entering the Center for Academic Excellence and Innovation (CAEI/ the Learning Center).  You’ll find the new FCTL Room entrance in the library gallery.  Signs will be posted.  

 

It is a space to meet colleagues, have room to collaborate, or work independently at one of the computer stations.  The new space inside the library is temporary.  We are working closely with Facilities and IT to open a permanent home in the fall 2019 semester.  We appreciate your support and cooperation as we move forward to make the FCTL room bigger and better for your usage.

While FCTL-sponsored faculty learning communities, workshops, consultations, and special events will continue to punctuate the academic calendar, bringing us together in person with one another, the Faculty-In-Residence and professional staff for Teaching Excellence and Engaged Learning are pleased to present to the community a new digital medium of exchange, FCTL à la carte.
