Other Professional Development Opportunities
It’s that time of year! Want to make ACADEMIC ADVISING more meaningful and less stressful for you and your students? Betsy Mariere, the college’s fantastic Coordinator of Advising, will be visiting the CTLA to share her wisdom with our faculty. ALL faculty are invited — adjuncts, we know students ask you for counsel, too. Get timely advice from an expert! Refreshments will be ready at 2:00. Don’t be shy---you are always welcome to come as your schedule allows.

When: Thursday, November 6th in the CTLA (Danvers campus, DB 388)
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? Are you using any instructional technology tools to aid you in providing feedback to your students? Please send your teaching strategies to itd@northshore.edu and we will share them in upcoming issues of iDevelop.
