June Professional Development Opportunities

Hi folks,

Here are the Professional Development opportunities we have coming up this week and during the month of June at CCCOnline. As always, you can register on the Training and Professional Development Database and find out more information about these and other opportunities on CCCOnline's Training and Professional Development web page.

Friday, May 31, 1:00 PM MST: Update From The CCCOnline Executive Director (Webinar)

Join us for an update from CCCOnline Executive Director Dr. Eric Lee about current events at CCCOnline.

Thursday, June 6, 1:00 PM MST: Let’s bring the library to the students! (Webinar)

Students seem to rely on Google when they’re doing research, and often the sources they end up using are just plain crummy. In online courses, it’s often difficult to persuade students to visit their local library. Our solution? We’re bringing the library and the librarian to the students via discussions in D2L. Come learn more about what’s going on with the embedded librarian project in HIS 101 & 102, ENG 121 & 122 and other courses. Facilitated by Mary Cash: Online Librarian, CCCOnline (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM MST)

Friday, June 28, 1:00 PM MST: Is There a Connection Between the Brain and Learning? (Webinar)

For generations, students of educational theory were steered away from brain research declaring it had nothing to offer to teaching and learning. Some critiques alleged that we simply lacked understanding of how the brain works and we should focus on what psychologists and cognitive studies have already revealed about teaching and learning. Within the past few decades, significant discoveries have occurred that have practical educational applications. During this webinar, participants will be introduced to the synergy of neuroscience and education along with their direct application to teaching. Facilitated by Norma Hollebeke: Associate Dean of Science, CCCOnline. (1:00 PM - 2:30 PM MST)
