The Celebration of Great Teaching Philosophy

Austin Community College’s Celebration of Great Teaching is based on the National Great Teaching Seminar, a movement begun in 1969. The time we spend together is like no other professional development you will encounter. Many have said it is the best professional development of their career.

The Celebration is based on the premise that teachers learn teaching best from other teachers and that creativity is enhanced by mixing teachers of diverse teaching fields, experience levels, and interests. The emphasis is on the universals of teaching and on the special nature of those who are and aspire to be great teachers. If properly tapped, the collective wisdom of practicing educators surpasses that of any expert.
