At Purdue University Northwest, the Center for Faculty Excellence facilitated two concurrent Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) on inclusive teaching in STEM during the 2022 calendar year. To understand the impact of the FLCs on participants, a research study was conducted to measure perception changes on inclusive pedagogical practices, engagement with SoTL, and their sense of belonging to their institution. In this session, we will discuss the intentional choices made for both the structure of the FLC and the research study, and offer insights that can be used to inform others that wish to conduct FLCs intended on changing faculty perspectives towards inclusive pedagogical practices.
