Dear Faculty Colleagues,

I’ve been asked to let you all know about a professional development opportunity. I’m very pleased to recommend this, because as you know, I am all for faculty-led faculty development!

In these interesting times, when many of us are being asked to teach in very new ways, I think we can only benefit from having caring and engaged colleagues to learn from. If you participate in the Teaching and Learning Academy, you’ll be a part of a cohort of passionate and brilliant educators, all working to help students learn. Take a peek at the forwarded information and consider applying.

You might want to consider participating in the 2020-2021 Teaching and Learning Academy. Anchored in the ACC Faculty Values and developed by twenty-five faculty for faculty, the Teaching and Learning Academy (TLA) contributes to student success by expanding faculty teaching practices.  Essential to the Teaching and Learning Academy is the creation of a cohort of faculty who will learn from each other by exploring the scholarship, art, and passion of teaching.

The Teaching and Learning Academy offers faculty 4 courses. Each course is 15 hours that includes 12 hours of asynchronous online coursework. The remaining 3 hours are completed in a Cohort Meeting the last Friday of each course from 8:30 to 11:30 AM.  Applications are now being accepted for Fall 2020.
