Join a Faculty Interest Group
UGA’s Chancellor’s Learning Scholars provide leadership through facilitation of Faculty Interest Groups (FIGs, for short). As you look ahead to the new semester, consider joining in.
Designing Authentic Learning Experiences in Digital Environments
Dr. Jill Stefaniak
The purpose of this Faculty Interest Group (FIG) is to gather UGA instructors/faculty who are interested in exploring strategies to support the design of authentic learning experiences in digital environments. The FIG will meet to discuss strategies for promoting real-world projects in a digital learning environment, challenges that impact student performance, and strategies for assessing these real-world experiences.
This group will meet once per month on Wednesdays.
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

Building Hybrid Classroom Communities
Dr. Kevin Jones
This Faculty Interest Group (FIG) explores new ways of building community and fostering engagement in hybrid classrooms. Members of the group will participate in critical discussions about recapturing the spirit of classroom community and engagement that has been challenged during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each member of the group will commit to making a change in their spring course to foster community and engagement and report on the success of their change.
The group will meet virtually on Wednesday afternoons (2:30-3:30 PM) once every three weeks in Spring 2021.
