iDevelop – NSCC’s Faculty Profession​al Developmen​t eNewslette​r (9/22/2014​)

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: How Can I Structure a Flipped Lesson?
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 September 22nd is How Can I Structure a Flipped Lesson?

More information about this session (including description, topics, and learning goals) is available

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.

Share your Teaching Strategies
Are you currently incorporating any strategies from the flipped classroom model into your classes?  What types of activities are you having your students do outside of class to introduce them to the content?  What types of activities are you having your students do in-class to engage with the content?   Please send us your teaching strategies and ideas to 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.
