Abstract

Quantitative and qualitative data are analyzed at the individual level - using 80 participant registration forms and 32 end-of year reports and 10 facilitator interviews; the group level- using 10 mid year and 3 end-of year case reports and the community level based on the overall results of the FLC program. Quantitative data from the individual reports indicate that 97% of participants found the FLC experience valuable and would recommend participation to a friend or colleague. The vast majority of participants (98%) would like to continue their participation, either in the same FLC (72%) or a different one (16%).The impact of FLC on the understanding of and interest in the scholarship of teaching and awareness to integrate teaching and research was reported as moderate, 3.25/5 and 2.9/5 respectively. However, 41% reported doing publication or presentations, 9% would like to do it in the future and 25% of participants worked with students in relation to a project.and 32 end-of year reports and 10 facilitator interviews; the group level- using 10 mid year and 3 end-of year case reports and the community level based on the overall results of the FLC program.
