Associated Colleges of the Midwest has offered valued faculty professional development opportunities for many years, funded through the generosity of foundation partners such as The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Teagle Foundation, and others.
We are proud of the opportunities they have created for ACM faculty from across our 14 colleges to come together to explore pedagogies and disciplinary questions of common interest and share best practices.
We asked faculty who have engaged with these programs to share their thoughts about their experiences and what they have gained from their participation. Their responses, along with some footage from a recent project-based conference, are offered in a new video.
We are gratified by their observations and hope others who are considering becoming more engaged with ACM professional development programs will be inspired to do so as we increase our offerings in this area as part of our new strategic plan.
