Building Connections Conference (BCC)
The Building Connections Conference (BCC) is University 101 Programs' annual one-day conference that serves as the major faculty development event for all University 101 instructors. This event serves as the cornerstone to the regular and ongoing faculty development opportunities for University 101 instructors. The BCC provides the opportunity for instructors to learn new strategies for achieving course learning outcomes, share ideas and best practices, understand campus trends and issues, reconnect with colleagues, and renew their enthusiasm for teaching UNIV 101. Content for the conference is driven by the results of the UNIV 101 course evaluation and assessment process, and the results of the annual University 101 Instructor Survey.
