Please apply for FIGs and APPLEs for 2013-14 by Tuesday November 12
27 October 2013
You, yes you – classified staff and faculty – are encouraged to apply for a Focused Inquiry Group or Action Plan Project through BCC’s Teaching and Learning Center this academic year. Let’s work together to solve problems, build community, and increase student success!
Please note: This year’s projects will run from November to May instead of the previous years, when work was completed during the semester. This will be a great opportunity: teams can conduct inquiry or try out a new action plan on fall and then spring students, and we will convene in April (tentatively April 25) 2014 at the Inquiry to Action Symposium to share our work.
Also, please note that a limited number of stipends are available for FIGs and APPLEs this year through a
dedicated portion of Professional Development funds and various grants. Leaders may receive a stipend of up to $400 and other participants $300, paid in May or June, after the final reports are received. Priority for stipends will be determined by the 9 voting members of the Professional Development Committee, according to these criteria:
- people working on projects that clearly meet the criteria for FIGs and APPLEs (see links below)
- part-time faculty and classified staff (priority for stipends over contract faculty)
- new participants in TLC Collaborative Project
- new participants in FIGs/APPLEs

If you have an idea for a project but don’t know which category it would best fit in, please pick a form and submit it, and we’ll discuss.
Please email me with any questions.
