SSD 2022: Post Event Summary

TLED’s Faculty Development team hosted ACC’s annual Summer Software Day on Friday, July 22, 2022. Participants engaged in online workshops throughout the day. 233 faculty and staff registered for the event.

Workshops included:

  • ACC Resources
  • Accessibility and Universal Design
  • Active and Engaged Teaching
  • Assessment Techniques
  • Creativity
  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB)

All workshops provided employees with a chance to grow their skills and knowledge. Attendees had the opportunity to learn how to gamify their lessons, get updated on Google offerings and upcoming changes, and familiarize themselves with a new software/case management system for students with disabilities and for faculty, Blackboard and so much more!

One of the highlights of the day included the Keynote presentation entitled “The Flow of the Future” by recent graduate Nathan Lu. Lu spoke passionately about his time at ACC, where he studied Computer Science and became a student leader in the department. Lu also outlined many ways faculty can support students. A participant commented the following feedback about their experience: “What a fantastic idea to have Nathan as the keynote speaker. This is one of the most thought-provoking and inspirational workshops I have attended in a long time.”
