Berkeley City College FELI

Berkeley City College (BCC) began their ACE program in the fall of 2009. Since that time BCC has more than doubled their program, developing numerous course innovations.  They have plans for increased expansion over the next two years, through the leadership of ACE Master Mentor III and ACE coordinator Chris Lebo-Planas.  BCC is offering a limited number of seats to outside colleges.

“This has been a powerful experience and transformative. My teaching style will improve because of this experience.

“The concept of inside-out learning was a major shift in my idea of what a teacher does. Now, I see the student-teacher relationship as collaborative.
