    The Science of Learning

    Unpacking Teaching/Learning During COVID-19

    Join us for this free, three part, interactive, Teagle Foundation-supported faculty development series exploring topics related to the science of learning in the time of COVID. You can attend one or all of these sessions. Previous topics have included: strategies to address lack of motivation and engagement, effective methods for teaching and learning remotely, strategies for teaching during crisis and beyond.

    Once you register for one or more sessions, you will receive a confirmation and a link to a SHORT survey determining the topics most of interest to you. Each monthly meeting responds directly to the pre-survey responses to offer content of interest to the cohort.   Information is applicable to faculty at all levels from any discipline.

    Please share this faculty development event with your member institutions.  Your membership in ACL provides this benefit free of charge to your members.

    Join with colleagues from institutions across the nation and the globe to learn how:

    • the brain responds to uncertainty and disruption and related strategies for teaching and learning in a precarious world 

    • to prepare for a world that will be different and how to help students with the transition 

    • to collaborate and support each other during this semester 

    Session Structure:

    • Applying Principles of the Learning Sciences to Faculty Questions and Challenges (20 mins)

    • Going Deeper with Colleagues (25 mins in breakout sessions)

    • Sharing the Learning Across Conversations (15 minute debrief)


    All sessions will be presented via Zoom. New dates have been established for our second and third sessions. Make sure to save the upcoming dates in your calendar! You will receive the Zoom link details in your registration confirmation email.

    Session Two: Friday, April 30, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm (ET) 

    Session Three: Friday, May 21, 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm (ET)

      Join us on Tuesday, May 4 for our members-only session on The Role of Consortia in Addressing Campus Mental Health: An Open Dialogue, co-facilitated by Deborah Obalil, Mickey McDonald, Rebecca Holloway, and Suronda Gonzalez.

      Coffee Chats provide space for members to connect informally around a topic of common interest and are lightly facilitated to allow for free-flowing conversation and sharing of wisdom and experience.  During this 75 minute chat, four ACL members will share their experiences supporting their consortium in addressing campus mental health, followed by open dialogue for all participants around topics such as: 

      • What are other consortia doing to address mental health needs for their members?
      • Barriers and opportunities related to supporting mental health initiatives
      • Resources and Best Practice Sharing
      • How has/will the pandemic impact mental health on campus; what’s our role?

      This meeting will not be recorded, but we will follow up with some notes from the meeting. Please note that this Coffee Chat is available exclusively to ACL members.
