With a series of interactive group activities and round table discussions, faculty members new to ACC were given the opportunity to find key points of contact in the college and develop solutions to early challenges. They learned from seasoned instructors and each other as they developed the ties with their colleagues that are essential to a satisfying career.

New Faculty Seminar – Learning From Your Experiences at ACC.

In this session, new faculty will be introduced to ACC’s evaluation and portfolio process. Resources for learning more about specific departmental and college-wide requirements will be provided. The focus will be using the 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 will get faculty members thinking about their syllabi, teaching philosophies, and future growth as educators.
