June 24, 2014


TO:                    ALL COLLEGE EMPLOYEES

FROM:               ROBERT H. SANDEL

DATE:                JUNE 24, 2014


Virginia Western Community College will be closed on Friday, July 4, 2014, in observance of Independence Day.  We will reopen on Saturday, July 5, for any activities that may occur over the weekend and for normal operations on Monday, July 7, 2014.

Hopefully, the weather will be cooperative for everyone to attend a local fireworks display as we celebrate the birth of our nation.  This is certainly an enjoyable time to be with family and friends.  If you are traveling over this holiday period, be safe in reaching your destinations and your return home.

Our next holiday closing will be Monday, September 1, 2014, as we observe Labor Day.  You may access the full VWCC alternate holiday schedule on VW Connect at https://vwconnect.vw.edu/sites/hr/default.aspx.

Have an enjoyable Independence Day holiday.


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
Location: HP Multipurpose Room
Registration is now open at: http://tinyurl.com/kzff635
