Computerside Chats Spring 2018

The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL) has at the heart of its mission the goal of helping ACC faculty guide other faculty. Join this ONLINE conversation to get the latest evidence-based teaching tips from experts AND hear how your colleagues think they can creatively use them in ACC classrooms.

Participants are entered for a chance to win a copy of the book!

Computerside Chats are the ACC book club for faculty where you DON’T HAVE TO READ THE BOOK! Chats for 2018 will focus on the book “Learner-centered teaching: Putting the Research on Learning into Practice” by Terry Doyle. In each session, you’ll be introduced to material and then have time to engage in an online conversation with your teaching colleagues about how ACC instructors might adopt some of these new methods in their classrooms. You’ll be able to get the latest evidence-based teaching without having to dig in to the research on your own.

Click on the months / chapter titles below to see scheduling information and to register. There will be two sessions each month so you can select the time that works best for you. You must pre-register for these events to get the link that will allow you to participate online.
