One of the many gifts of working in the Adams Center is interacting with faculty from all over campus. The collaboration that occurs in the Adams Center serves as such an encouragement to the Adams Center staff and the faculty who come together to share about teaching, learning, positive experiences, and challenges.

Last week, in the session “Active Learning While Physically Distant,” participants shared what they feel hopeful about right now. Enjoy this list from ACU faculty.
