Spring Development Day 2022: Light Your Fire
Friday, January 14, 2022
Spring Development Day 2022 welcomed all Austin Community College (ACC) faculty and staff to a new spring semester. A full day of inspiring sessions were offered to enhance employee practices and processes, improve creativity and wellness, and develop new technical talents, teaching techniques, and interpersonal skills. The 2022 theme, “Light Your Fire,” explored professional development topics designed to fuel purpose and a sense of belonging.
450 registrants attended over 30 different workshops on topics such as Accessibility and Universal Design, Active and Engaged Teaching, Adobe Tools, Assessment Techniques, Austin Community College (ACC) Resources, Creativity, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI), and Wellness. The feedback for this virtual event was overwhelmingly positive.
- “Thank you for ALL you do to help us become better professors and create a collaborative, caring community!”
- “I appreciate how willing people are to share their expertise. We all benefit greatly from this.”
- 96% of survey respondents for all workshops believed the information learned would make them more effective in their role
Featured speakers included keynote Dr. Sam Echevarria-Cruz, ACC’s Associate Dean of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion of Initiatives in Instruction, and many fellow ACC faculty and staff who shared their expertise with colleagues.
The Office of Faculty Development & Evaluation is working to award professional development credit in Workday Learn. Attendees will be notified when this process is complete. We appreciate your patience as we learn how to use this new system. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
