46 ACC faculty at #LillyCon Austin

46 ACC faculty attended the 6th Annual Lilly Conference for College and University Teaching and Learning. ACC offers conference scholarships to faculty who are motivated to bring lessons learned back to their colleagues. Faculty in attendance hailed from all ten Areas of Study, and have provided a list of recommended resources from the conference (see below).

For nearly 40 years, Lilly Conferences have provided opportunities for the presentation of the scholarship of teaching and learning. Conference participants are made up of faculty and administrators at various stages in their academic careers that come from across the United States, representing nearly every discipline found in higher education. The Austin conference maintains the same overall theme: “Evidence-Based Teaching and Learning.”

English professor, Lydia French, shared that, “as an adjunct faculty member with another full-time job, it is often difficult to connect with others in the college on a meaningful level, but after the Lilly Conference I feel much more a part of the ACC community. And I feel less isolated in the work that I’m doing here.”
