Hot Topic, January 16


WHEN:  Wednesday, January 16; 1:00 p.m.
WHERE:  Webber Hall 307
FACILITATOR:  Ms. Edna Whittier

This session will introduce the idea of learning styles, which are your preferred ways of taking in and learning new material. Once you identify your learning style, you can determine how closely it matches the traditional teaching modalities used in higher education. You may need to develop your weaker learning styles and adopt strategies for working in class, studying, and taking exams that maximize your strengths.

PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR STUDENTS TO ATTEND THESE VERY USEFUL HOT TOPIC SESSIONS. If you would like to offer extra credit to students, they will be given an “extra credit ticket” as verification of their attendance to bring back to class.

2013 Spring In-Service


Spring In-Service 2013 was a historic event for the college in that it was the first time that we have closed the college so that all faculty and staff could attend the in-service meeting. The suggestion to close the college came through our governance process and was acted on by the president’s staff. As a follow-up to measure the effectiveness of this change, please help us by completing the survey at http://survey.vccs.edu/wsb.dll/s/41gecc. The survey is short, but will help us to determine the college-wide effectiveness of closing the college so that all can attend the spring in-service. We will use this information to inform future decisions.

Thank you in advance for your feedback. Please complete this by Monday, January 14.
