Innovation Type:
Learning and Teaching

Description:
ATLAS engages a cohort of veteran adjunct faculty representing diverse disciplines, in the study, discussion, and implementation of high-impact pedagogical practices in writing-enriched courses. Through ATLAS, CCBC has provided adjunct faculty a professional development context and forum to sustain critical discourse in a community of inquiry. Participants received a stipend for participation in the year-long learning community which featured four face-to-face meetings, online discussions, and the development and presentation of a teaching project. Program activities also included the reading of a focus book (John Bean’s Engaging Ideas: The Professor's Guide to Integrating Writing, Critical Thinking, and Active Learning in the Classroom) and related articles/resources.
