The Faculty Teaching Toolbox is a resource for faculty and staff that provides an introduction to some of the many instructional support services offered by Austin Community College.
These services support and enhance our faculty's instruction and, thus, support and enhance our students' learning experiences.
Use the Table of Contents below or the tabs above to explore these resources.
Need help identifying potential points of need in your course? Think you have found them all, but want another set of eyes to review? Contact a faculty librarian on the Information Literacy Team or an Instructional Design Specialist on your campus.
Concerned that your students lack the skills to be successful using online supports? Assign them to review introductory computer skills elements from the Learning Resource Toolbox and/or Learning Express at the start of your course.
