Faculty Connection Series

The goal of the three sessions of the Faculty Connection Series is to offer all faculty a stronger connection to ACC and to their students and colleagues. Each of the three workshops will focus on a different topic, and provide instructors with resources that will support their success in the classroom, and give them the opportunity to explore teaching and learning with their peers. You can register for the sessions below.

The idea for this series came as a response to requests from faculty members who asked that something like the “New Faculty seminar” be made available to all faculty.

Faculty Connection Series #1 – The Engaging Classroom: How do YOU achieve it? (Feb 10th)

Friday, February 10, 2017
8:30am – 12:00pm
HBC 301.0

In this session, faculty learn more about their college, their colleagues, and their students. With a series of interactive group activities and round table discussions, faculty members have the opportunity to explore solutions to teaching challenges. They​​ learn​ about what research has to say about best practices in teaching, and how to bring those ideas to the classroom in a way that works for each individual’s personal style.

Breakfast is served; please contact the FCTL (FCTL@austincc.edu) if you have any dietary restrictions or require special accommodations.

Faculty Connection Series #3 - Learning about Teaching through Reflection (April 28th)

Friday, April 28, 2017
8:30am – 12:00pm

In this session, faculty discuss ACC’s evaluation process more personally; as an opportunity to reflect on the current semester with an eye toward how to make the next one even better. This interactive session gets faculty members thinking about their syllabi, teaching philosophies, and future growth as educators.
