iDevelop – NSCC’s Faculty Profession​al Developmen​t eNewslette​r (12/8/201​4)

Welcome to iDevelop, a weekly eNewsletter providing faculty with information about professional development opportunities at NSCC. The intent of this eNewsletter is to spotlight the various professional development events for faculty in one convenient location as well as share best practices, resources and tips related to the teaching practice.

20 Minute Online Professional Development: Where Can I Find Flippable Moments in My Classes?
The Monday Morning Mentor series will be available over the fall semester to bring you professional development in twenty minute snippets. The topic for the week of December 8th is Where Can I Find Flippable Moments in My Classes?

The presentation is available Monday at 10:00am and is accessible through Sunday of that week. For information on accessing the presentation and supplemental materials, please view the email version of iDevelop or the Bulletin notice.

More information about this session (including description, topics, and learning goals) is available at http://www.magnapubs.com/online/mentor/where-can-i-find-flippable-moments-in-my-classes-11979-1.html.

Other Professional Development Opportunities
  1. ALL INTERESTED NSCC FACULTY: Are you interested in taking a graduate course locally and tuition-free? By virtue of the CTLA's partnership with Merrimack College's Community Engagement graduate program, we can send one faculty member to take a course tuition-free from Merrimack College's graduate education catalog or a course in the Child, Family and Community Studies bachelor's program. Check out the offerings in the two respective areas online, and if you're ready to make that commitment to continuous learning, contact Rebecca in the CTLA. We'll give the voucher to the first person who chooses a course and contacts us. And we'll announce the lucky learner in the next installment of iDevelop!
Share your Teaching Strategies
Please send your teaching strategies 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.
