Ferrum College Hosts Teaching and Learning Institute
Ferrum College was host to the Appalachian College Association's (ACA) Teaching and
Learning Institute held June 3 - 7, 2013. ACA member faculty attended the week long
workshop on campus focused upon college teaching and learning.“Ferrum College was honored to host the ACA Teaching and Learning Institute this year.
The TLI is an important faculty development opportunity for ACA member institutions,"
said Gail Summer, Ferrum College Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs. "Energy
was high all week long as faculty gathered to learn from each other and invited keynote
speakers. It is essential that faculty stay abreast of research-supported best practice,
and the TLI helps make that possible.”The Appalachian College Association is a non-profit consortium of 36 private four-year
liberal arts institutions from the central Appalachian Mountains in Kentucky, North
Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. The ACA's Teaching and Learning
Institute (TLI) serves member school faculty with a week-long college teaching and
learning workshop presented by national experts and ACA master-teachers.See photographs from the 2013 ACA Teaching & Learning Institute held at Ferrum College
