TALC Council

TALC Council supports the efforts of our learning college journey by providing guidance for achieving Isothermal’s Learning College Principles and through the following functions:

  • Supporting and providing leadership for taskforces
  • Developing activities to support learning
  • Evaluating the focus and purpose of TALC taskforces
  • Collecting and assessing information to identify and address barriers to learning
  • Mentoring and cultivating leadership skills to sustain the learning college by developing a leadership training series
  • Establishing goals as part of the strategic planning process
  • Recognizing the definition of learners as students, employees, organization and community
  • Administering TALC budget as allocated by the college administration

TALC Council is comprised of 9 members. Three, including a Chair, Vice Chair, and Secretary, form the Leadership Team. The remaining positions are filled by various departmental representatives. TALC Council meets on a monthly basis. Meetings are also attended by non-members including the previous year's Chair (who serves in a one-year advisory position) and a Professional Development committee representative. The TALC Council Chair meets with President's Council and the Vice-Chair meets with College Council on a monthly basis for updates and reviews. In addition to functioning as the learning steering committee, the Council maintains a timeline of significant events in our learning journey.
