Spring Development Day

Spring Development Day welcomes all Austin Community College (ACC) faculty and staff to a new spring semester. This year we are excited to announce that this year’s Spring Development Day will be a Faculty and Staff Showcase. We will be exploring the innovative teaching practices and research in which ACC Faculty are involved. In addition, we will be showcasing the services and support provided to ACC Faculty and Students by Staff. Spring Development Day will also offer a full day of inspiring sessions to enhance your practices and processes, improve creativity and wellness, and develop new technical talents, teaching techniques, interpersonal skills, and provide opportunities for networking and collaboration.

The 2023 theme, “Get There Together: Supporting Student Success,” invites all employees to explore ways in which together, they can and do support student success as well as their own. This year, Spring Development Day will be delivered primarily in person at Highland Campus with limited virtual offerings for anyone who is unable to join us on campus.

Unless specifically stated, all workshops will be presented in-person. Limited workshops and events will be offered online and hyflex.

Empathetic Agility:

increasing our adaptability with empathy in a time of change in the economy and education.

As a society, we are all sensitive to innovation, disruption, and economic expansion caused by external forces of change that require empathy and agility. As educational leaders, understanding how change impacts the educational experience for students and faculty alike requires deep empathy and agility. Understanding the roles both play in developing students, staff, and ourselves in this collective journey of change is critical.
