TACT Fall Leadership Conference Scheduled

Amidst the hustle and bustle of a new academic year, we won’t ask you to DO anything this week, but we will ask you to PROMISE yourself something.  When crazy becomes routine, please consider asking yourself if attending this year’s TACT Fall Conference would be an excellent investment of time in your career.

TACT First Alert August 15, 2013

UT-Austin President Bill Powers yesterday provided his faculty with a report on the future of online learning and asked for faculty input on issues such as blended learning, flipped classrooms, pedagogy and curriculum. He encouraged faculty to contribute further content that may be shared in nontraditional ways.

More Time, More Issues?
At the risk of redundancy, the latest legislative special session has emboldened its leaders to again ask the Governor to add issues of importance to TACT to the agenda.  Tuition Revenue Bonds for campus construction and more guns on campus for more shootings are still alive (pardon the pun), even after a Regular Session, two specials and seven months.  TACT supports more roofs to cover more students and fewer weapons to keep them safer.
