Feedback on Spring
Format – Shorter
big-group; more breakouts—Well-received overall
Keynote speaker –
Collaborate vs. taping –Sarah will work to get recordings available through the
Bulletin or another way.
Development Meet and Greet – Was a late open day; attendance was lighter than
hoped, but there were some good questions and it was good to explain procedures
Discussion-Ideas for Spring Events
Alison is working on
developing a “mini-Convocation”, possibly during Spring Break, to offer an opportunity
for those who could not attend Spring Convocation to get similar information.
Watch for more info.
Ed McGee is offering two
sessions on how to use Blackboard Collaborate to keep classes going during inclement
weather. There is a session tonight and tomorrow.
New Horizons – Deadline to
register is February 16.
Alison is working on a
dual-enrollment faculty development workshop for spring, to include classroom management
techniques, etc. and it will be open to all and encouraged for those who are
teaching high school students. Watch for
info. Timing will probably be between
our end of spring semester and graduation.
Application review will
commence at the close of meeting.
