- Examine evidence-based teaching strategies that engage students and deepen student learning of course outcomes.
Faculty cohorts will reflect upon and collaboratively design strategies for deepening student engagement.
Anchored in the ACC Faculty Values, the Teaching and Learning Academy (TLA) will contribute to student success by expanding faculty teaching practices. The Academy is designed to support faculty based on evidence-based teaching strategies, reflective practice, and teaching innovation. Essential to the Teaching and Learning Academy is the creation of a group of faculty who will learn from each other. The Academy cohort begins with a retreat, to establish a community of learners that explores the scholarship, art and passion of teaching and continues over fall and spring semesters through hybrid coursework.
