Faculty play a lead role in the success of our students.
Faculty members comprise 53 percent of employees in Washington state's 34 community and technical colleges (2014-15). The office of Assessment, Teaching, and Learning (ATL) offers a wide range of events designed to foster faculty success as they create significant learning experiences for students.
The statewide Assessment, Teaching and Learning Community (ATLC) includes educators, administrators, and institutional researchers — representing both two-year and four-year institutions in Washington — who provide campus leadership to strengthen teaching and learning through assessment and faculty development.
The 2020 Fall Faculty Institute was a two-day immersion into the foundational knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for faculty who wish to lead with racial equity in the spirit of the SBCTC vision statement during COVID-19.
The STEM Communities of Practice (CoPs) are faculty-driven learning collectives designed to support educators as they create significant and equitable learning environments for students during COVID-19 that lead with racial equity in the spirit of the SBCTC Vision.
Composed of full-time and adjunct faculty across the major STEM disciplines, each CoP meets regularly to explore challenges and share successes. These meetings are not trainings or webinars; rather, they are collaborative spaces where practitioners learn from and with each other. Conversations cover a range of topics, including equitable assessment practices, developing quality labs that are fully online, successfully engaging students, and more.
In addition, the CoPs utilize a “many hands make light work” model to build and share tools that faculty across the 34 CTCs can use to authentically serve the students at our institutions: faculty work together to create tangible resources to share.
