More than 480 ACC employees registered to attend Spring Development Day 2024. The 2024 theme was “The Power of Love: Inspiring Change and Innovation,” which explored how love, empathy, and compassion could be powerful catalysts for positive change and innovation in both personal and professional contexts.

The event was held Friday, January 12, and featured a day full of synchronous online workshops and a hybrid (online/in-person) keynote address. 

The workshops offered attendees the opportunity to improve their creativity and wellness; develop new technical talents, teaching techniques, and interpersonal skills; and network and collaborate. Workshop topics included purpose and belonging, emotional intelligence, artificial intelligence, course design, and more. 

ACC Chancellor Dr. Russell Lowery-Hart delivered the keynote address in person at the ACC Highland Campus, and watch parties were held at the ACC Round Rock and ACC Hays campuses. Three hundred people attended the keynote online and over 80 attended in person at one of the three campuses.

If you could not attend Spring Development Day 2024 or would like to rewatch the workshops or keynote, recordings are now available on the Spring Development Day webpage.
