ACS Summer Workshop and Working Groups Proposals Currently Being Accepted

April 5, 2021 @ 8:00 am April 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm EDT

ACS is pleased to put out a special call to ACS faculty and staff members for summer virtual workshop and working group proposals. 

Workshops consist of 1-4 faculty and/or staff members who collaborate to develop and deliver 90 minutes sessions virtually across the consortium. Working groups are made up of 4-8 faculty and/or staff members who participate in multiple conversations to develop and/or curate material.  Working groups result in some sort of tangible product. 

ACS will help develop the team of members; teams must include members from multiple institutions.  If you have an idea that fits one of the 12 topics below, but don’t yet have a team, propose it; we will help you find collaborators. 

Proposals must tie to one of the following topics: 

  • Inclusive Pedagogies (Anti-racist pedagogies)  
  • Developing new thinking about Advising and Mentoring  
  • COVID Recovery and Faculty Well-being  
  • Mid-Career Faculty Transitions  
  • Strategies for Planning, Maintaining, and Energizing Scholarship Post-COVID  
  • Enhancing the First-Year Experience  
  • Rethinking the (Post-pandemic) Sophomore Experience  
  • Faculty Leadership Development topic: Preparing Department/Program Chairs 
  • A post-COVID look at Study Abroad: Sustainability and the Global Experience  
  • ACS 2021 Writing Group*: (This group is being organized and will take up to 8 individuals who want a guided experience, with allotted time to get that writing done.)  
  • “Post-COVID” versus “Pre-COVID”: What looks different, what have we learned, and how do we make it happen?  
  • Great Practices Series: Diversifying faculty and staff (2021) 

*For the ACS 2021 Writing Group, rather than a proposal description, applicants should explain what it is that they are working on (for their writing project(s), and what they hope to gain from the writing group experience.
