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.

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.


If you are interested in facilitating or joining a FIG or Reading Group, please contact the TCC Coordinator Jon Iuzzini (
