Chalk Talk: A Meetup for Faculty

If you are feeling siloed in your office and missing the energy that comes from a more collegial atmosphere, then a Chalk Talk is for you! The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning is hosting monthly “Chalk Talk: A Meetup for Faculty” at each ACC campus, organized by an ACC faculty campus ambassador. This Meetup is your standing reservation each month to connect with and learn from your teaching colleagues. The FCTL is excited to bring faculty out of their silos and create a collaborative culture – light refreshments provided!

All faculty are welcome to attend any campus’ Chalk Talk. Click on the campus below to register.

“Invaluable for faculty that are serious about being the best educators they can, especially adjunct faculty, who can tend to be more isolated.”

“Nice idea for fostering a sense of community with no strings attached and minimal effort. It sometimes seems that everything in my professional life is goal-oriented so this a change.”

“This is a great start to creating a sense of community on our individual campuses and bridging the gap between full time and adjunct faculty.”

“We need to get to know one another as faculty. It is often difficult to meet faculty members from other departments, and this is a great way to make that happen in a positive environment.”

“It was relaxed but also thoughtful, and I got to hear similar and dissimilar views on handling the same situation.”
