Academy of Teaching, Learning, and Success for Healthcare Professions (ATLAS HCP)
ATLAS HCP is an opportunity for you to connect with other colleagues, learn more about TCC’s resources to support faculty and students, and ultimately, to support and expand knowledge, skills, and abilities related to teaching and learning at TCC. ATLAS HCP focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to teach psychomotor skills and the educational technology used in the Healthcare Professions.
The idea behind ATLAS is to provide directions and maps to many different places. There are many destinations in teaching and learning and many ways to get there. Along the way are interesting stops on this exciting journey. Enjoy the journey, enjoy the experience, and have fun connecting with colleagues and enhancing your teaching!
The guiding question for these seminars is, “What can I do to enhance learning for my students?” The process for answering the question is based on extensive interaction and sharing with colleagues across healthcare disciplines. Exposure to TCC faculty resources including the Center for Teaching Excellence and the Center for Distance Learning along with information about TCC’s student resources such as the Learning Commons will connect you with the tools and resources for successful teaching and learning.
