Other Professional Development Opportunities
1. Would you like to better help your students map out a career path? Would you like to learn more about how Career Services can help our students get on the track to academic and professional success?  Come meet Arlene Amato-Hanson, and find out how Career Services can help your students plan their occupational and educational futures.  All are welcome to attend if your schedules allow!  Please RSVP to Rebecca Twalipo in the CTLA (rtwalipo@northshore.edu) so that we can get a headcount for refreshments.  The session will take place in the CTLA Conference Room (Danvers Berry Room 388) on Thursday, October 2nd.  Refreshments are available at 2:00p.m. and the program begins at 2:30p.m.  

Share your Teaching Strategies
In what ways do you seek feedback from your students in your courses?  In what ways do you provide feedback back to students on participation in discussion forums, assignments, projects, or assessments?  Please send us your teaching strategies and ideas to itd@northshore.edu and we will share them in the upcoming issues of iDevelop.

iDevelop is being brought to you by Academic Technology and the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment.  If you have any professional development events, best practices, resources or tips to share with other faculty, please send them our way.  Also, we would love your input on this eNewsletter.
