If you’re looking to balance your rest and relaxation with some professional development, the CTE is here to help. This July, we will host three virtual workshops.
July 13, 4-6 pm
Fostering Community in Virtual and Face to Face Classrooms
Increasingly, students and faculty report feelings of disconnection. We can blame it on the anonymity of masks or the “black hole” of the Zoom screen, but what can we do about it? This workshop will provide a space for sharing strategies and equip faculty with some tools to cultivate community in online and face to face classrooms.
July 20, 4-6 pm
Approaching Course Policies with an Ethic of Care
It’s easy to administer the policies of our syllabi from an Ethic of Justice rather than an Ethic of Care. This workshop will consider the varied experiences and circumstances of our GRCC students and critically examine how our classroom policies can set up our students for success or failure. Discussion will begin with the philosophical and end with the practical application of this perspective.
July 27, 4-6 pm
Organizing your Course Materials
What makes a well organized course? This workshop is part OHCC review, part Google Docs workshop, part idea exchange. Come prepared to learn and share your strategies for keeping your Blackboard course well organized for your students (and yourself).
Forgot how to register? Here are the instructions. Once you are registered, you’ll receive a calendar invite with the Zoom link.
Looking forward to learning with you,
The CTE Team
