All-Faculty Retreat

HCC’s All Faculty Retreat is Here!

This year’s retreat will take place May 16-19, 2017 at The Tremont House in Galveston. The All Faculty Retreat differs from most retreats in that, for the most part, the program is created by the participants themselves. The staff’s major role is facilitation. The format varies but often includes: teaching clinics, panels, organized discussions, “hands on” workshops, and presentations by participants or retreat staff. The exchange takes place not only in scheduled sessions, but also informally on the rooftop, by the pool, in conversations at dinner, or on excursions on the Strand or the island.

The goals of the retreat include: sharing methods and techniques – celebrating good teaching – creative, realistic problem solving – an exploration of new ideas – serious introspection and self-appraisal – professional and personal rejuvenation.

The Retreat cost is $615 and Includes room, valet parking, refreshments, and all but one meal (Thursday’s lunch is on your own). Transportation to and from the Retreat is not included. You can use your Professional Development funds or apply for a Bedichek-Orman Grant to cover the cost or a portion of the Retreat. Applicants will be notified of their status by April 7th.
