First-Year Faculty

We’ve gathered a collection of resources for ACC first-year faculty.

Workshops & Training

New Faculty Seminar Series

The New Faculty Seminar Series is a three part seminar developed by the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL). The seminar is open to all new faculty, both adjunct and full time, and will cover a full range of experiences that will benefit educators of any designation. Attend as many sessions as your schedule allows. Faculty members who complete all three sessions of this series will be awarded a certificate. 

Fall 2018 topics:

  • Connecting With Your College, Colleagues, and Students
  • Helping Your Students Achieve Success
  • Learning From Your Experiences at ACC

Please contact the Faculty Center for Teaching & Learning (FCTL@austincc.edu) for any questions.

Faculty Connection Series

The goal of the three sessions of the Faculty Connection Series (FCS) is to offer all faculty a stronger connection to ACC and to their students and colleagues. Each of the three workshops will focus on a different topic, and provide instructors with resources that will support their success in the classroom, and give them the opportunity to explore teaching and learning with their peers. You can register for the sessions below.

The idea for this series came as a response to requests from faculty members who asked that something like the “New Faculty seminar” be made available to all faculty.

Mentoring

All new ACC faculty, both full-time and adjunct, must be assigned a mentor during their first semester at ACC. Any other faculty member may be assigned a mentor at the discretion of the Department Chairs or upon the request of the faculty member. Administrative Rule# 4.01.015

Contact your department for more specific information for obtaining a mentor.

As part of mentoring support, Faculty Development maintains a list of ACC faculty who have completed the Faculty Mentor Training and are prepared to mentor fellow faculty.
