TCC Programs and Events
MCC's Teaching & Creativity Center offers a variety of programs and topics to support teaching faculty. Our programming and services are designed using a three-category structure: one-time experiences, cohort experiences, and faculty development services. All programs are open to full-time and adjunct faculty members. We look forward to seeing you soon!
One-time experiences: This category contains professional development opportunities that consist of a single session or workshop and is geared for busy faculty members. The TCC utilizes these one-time experiences to respond quickly to faculty needs and interests, to encourage pedagogical discussions and sharing of resources across disciplines, and to provide a forum for MCC faculty members with pedagogical innovations to showcase their work. Programs in this category include TCC Conversations and workshops; the Winter Teaching Institute (co-sponsored with the Department of Education); Adjunct Faculty Professional Development Programs; and the year-end Teaching & Learning Conference.
Winter Teaching Institute - January 6, 2015
Teaching & Learning Conference - June 12, 2015
Cohort experiences: This category contains professional development opportunities that consist of collaborative groups of faculty members working together for a common goal. These programs are designed for faculty members who are looking for an ongoing professional development opportunity. During the semester, members will meet 4-5 times to discuss current research, develop new strategies and techniques, and work together to improve teaching. Groups are faculty-driven and provide a supportive environment for exchanging ideas. Programs in this category include Faculty Inquiry Groups (FIGs), First-Year Faculty Series (FYFS), Faculty Learning Communities (FLC), and Critical Friends Group.
Faculty Development Services: This category contains professional development opportunities to support individual faculty members. Programs in this category include College-wide Faculty Mentoring Program, one-on-one consultations, and Small Group Instructional Feedback (SGIF). Please contact Jon Iuzzini (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Neeta Primo (email@example.com) for a consultation, a non-evaluative classroom observation, or SGIF. (All consultations and observations are confidential.)
The Teaching & Creativity Center is also available to assist or provide professional development programs for groups, departments, or divisions. Please contact the TCC Coordinator for more information.
