Challenging Our Assumptions

Incorporating Art into Classroom Activities
Friday, September 26, 2014 /10:00 – 10:50 a.m.
Incorporating art into classroom activities can deepen the learning experience and aid in understanding concepts. This provides an opportunity for students to construct their own learning and develop visual thinking strategies. Reflection and self-evaluation are products of constructing meaning from the subject being learned.

Faculty Technology Forums
Friday, September 26, 2014 / 1:00 – 1:50 p.m.
Chandy Melton will facilitate a discussion of the incorporation of Open Educational Resources (OER) into the classroom. This will be an open conversation for faculty to learn from each other how they are using OER and to ask questions of colleagues as they plan for the future. Chandy has been using OER in her HIS 265 History of Women in America course and will share how she structures her syllabus and the resources she uses. For those who are currently using OER, be sure to bring your materials to share with your colleagues.
All MCC employees are required to complete an online safety traning session annually. Please view the session and take the quizzes, then print your certificate of completion and forward a copy to May Wright in Human Resources.
