New Faculty Seminar Series

The New Faculty Seminar Series is a three part seminar developed by the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL). The seminar is open to all new faculty, both adjunct and full time, and will cover a full range of experiences that will benefit educators of any designation. Attend as many sessions as your schedule allows. Faculty members who complete all three sessions of this series will be awarded a certificate. 

Adjuncts who attend in-person events will receive a stipend of $25 per hour of attendance. Attendance will be tracked over the course of the Fall semester and stipends will be processed after the last event for payment prior to the winter break.

The FCTL gives away several great teaching-focused books at each event – make sure to enter your name in the drawing at the sign-in table!

Breakfast is served at these events; please contact the Faculty Center for Teaching & Learning (FCTL@austincc.edu) if you have dietary restrictions.
