On July 1st it’s coming. Are you ready for it?

Are you ready for the 30 DAY SQUAT CHALLENGE?

That's right, challenge yourself to do the 30 Day Squat Challenge. What else have you been doing this summer? How's that swimming going? Running all over the place? Is the bicycle still in the garage? Don't leave work, don't change clothes. If you can bend, you can squat.

Print out this chart - http://monicaelayne.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/squat-challenge.jpg . Lead a group in your area or join a friend. Get up and get it done!

Don't know how to do a squat? Sorry, that's no excuse - here's a video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-eQooI6Yds

July 1st - it's about to go down!

Brought to you by the Health-Wellness-Fun Committee of the Staff Senate.

Do you have Friday Night Fever?

There's only one cure for Friday Night Fever - a night out with your co-workers at Buffalo Wild Wings. Stop by Buffalo Wild Wings Tanglewood after work on Friday, June 27th for a meal, a drink, conversation, and fun! No agenda, no to-do list, just wind down on a Friday night. The conversation and fun is free, everything else you have to pay for.

This event is the brain child of the Health-Wellness-FUN Committee of the Staff Senate but everyone is welcome to attend.

2014 Instructional Technology Mini – Conference

The eLIT office and the VWCC Plus 50 Initiative are co-sponsoring the 2014 Instructional Technology Mini-Conference, a free one-day conference and professional development opportunity for all Virginia Western faculty and staff. The Mini-Conference will include a full day of sessions delivered by outside professionals on a broad range of topics: Blackboard Collaborate and Blackboard IM, Flipping the Classroom, Atomic Learning, Blackboard Learn Roadmap, and Instructional Technology for Adult Learners (Plus 50 learners). A complete conference agenda can be found here: http://vwccelit.blogspot.com/

VWCC faculty who complete the full-day mini-conference will receive a certificate equivalent to the completion of two-weeks of TOTAL workshop credits. These credits will contribute to satisfying the “Professional Development Objectives for Faculty Teaching Hybrid and Online Courses” as outlined in the new Faculty Evaluation and Development Plan (see page 9).

For faculty anticipated to teach only on-campus courses, these credits will also be considered “appropriate training in teaching with technology” that will contribute to meeting professional development objectives in the teaching domain of the new Faculty Evaluation and Development Plan (see page 9).

Time: Friday, July 25, 2014 from 8am to 4:15pm
