Behind the Scenes
Keeping faculty informed about our efforts at ACC
The Teaching & Learning Excellence Division (TLED) has many offices under its umbrella, all of which focus on support services for faculty in one form or fashion. Over the past several months TLED has been working to reorganize these areas and in some cases, renaming them when necessary.

This month, we’re featuring the “Behind the Scenes” work of the newly named Office of Curriculum Development (previously known as Instructional Support Services).

Faculty Spotlight
Highlighting ACC faculty success in & out of the classroom
New Process for Course Material Orders: Gracias, Merci, and Thank You to the Foreign Language Department!

As previously announced, Administrate Rule #4.01.006 Course Materials Orders was approved and is in the process of going into effect. This AR supports processes that contribute to student success by providing them accurate information about required and recommended course materials at the time of registration. In anticipation of the transition to FacultyEnlight for textbook course materials ordering, departments still using Ellucian were encouraged to instead submit spring 2018 orders via FacultyEnlight. 

We want to thank the Foreign Language department for being early adopters to the new FacultyEnlight system. Foreign Language was the first instructional department this semester to have submitted 100% of their course material orders using FacultyEnlight. Shout out to Rahelina Razanadrafara (Administrative Assistant III), Vanessa Lazo (Department Chair), and Becky Jaimes (Professor) for all their hard work to get Foreign Languages to this milestone!
