An easy way to stay connected.
The Teaching & Learning Excellence Division (TLED) exists to provide quality instructional support & services to all of our part-time and full-time faculty here at Austin Community College. We use social media to connect to our community in a more meaningful & transparent way.

Follow us on Facebook & Twitter to see stories about our ongoing work and innovations. We share valuable resources, timely updates about our programming, interesting recaps in the case that you're unable to attend our events, and more.

The best part: you'll see pictures of your ACC students & colleagues all throughout our posts, because in TLED we partner with faculty on a daily basis to improve the learning environment for our students.
