One of the goals of the Center is to help nurture a culture of inquiry and intellectual engagement throughout the campus. To that end, we support numerous informal working groups and professional learning communities that convene to explore ideas and to forge research and teaching partnerships with colleagues across and beyond campus.
Faculty at SJSU have ready access to a number of expert data-bases, through which they can identify and locate faculty with particular areas of interest and expertise.

Come start the day or take a break and learn about the fascinating projects your colleagues have under way. At each "Breakfast Club" and "Tea & Talk" meeting, one or more "featured presenters" provide(s) a quick thumbnail sketch of their current work, and then we open things up for a general conversation. We provide coffee, tea and carbohydrates.
Educated Person Dialogue
Facilitated by Annette Nellen, Faculty-in-Residence for Educated Person Dialogue; Professor, Accounting & Finance
Educated Person Dialogue is part of the Campus Dialogue that began in 2003, on what it means to be an educated person and what more we can be doing to help our students on their journey of lifelong learning. Brown bag discussions/workshops are held in each semester. Please come to as many as you can to share your ideas with others and to learn more about ways we can all help to further enrich the educational experience of SJSU students. Bring a friend. All sessions are from noon – 1 pm in IRC 101. For this semester's information on the presenters and dates, please see our Events page.
A faculty learning community (FLC) is a group of faculty, typically 8 to 12 in size, that engages in collegial conversation and inquiry around a topic of mutual interest. At SJSU, faculty participating in such learning communities spend the semester or the year addressing questions pertaining to student learning, teaching effectiveness, and the like.

Like snowflakes, no students are exactly alike – they differ enormously in how they learn best, how they respond to constructive feedback about their performance, how and why they do or don't make use of their instructors and other resources to help them in their classes. This series consists of monthly discussions where panelists/speakers with expertise with respect to a particular segment of our student populations can help faculty (and staff) better understand issues and needs that pertain to that segment of our student body as well as campus resources available to them. Come explore some ways to figure out what might work best in your classes.
