Abstract
A learning community model is presented as a successful approach to teaching-related professional development for research-active future faculty. Four core elements of learning communities are identified: shared discovery and learning, functional relationships, inclusive learning environments, and connections to other learning experiences. These four elements are used throughout learning community programming and activities to foster a sense of shared identity, belonging, ownership, responsibility, and contribution. We describe preliminary indicators of success as we prepare to further test the model.
