Faculty Association of California Community Colleges

The California Great Teachers Seminar has been held annually since 1979, involving over 1200 faculty members. The seminar is both inspiring and relaxing. It brings together teachers from all disciplines, counselors, librarians, and other faculty, both full-time and part time, to explore successes and innovations and solutions to problems. In spite of what the name might suggest, the seminar is not so much a gathering of teachers who are already great as it is a group of dedicated educators seeking the "great teacher" within.
