Webinars through the TLC

Thursday, October 23 - Fostering & Promoting Open Educational Resources on Your Campus & Beyond

11:00-12:00 (NISOD)

The Maricopa Millions project is saving students money and creating greater access to learning materials using open educational resources (OER). This presentation will provide details on how a very large community college district is developing awareness of OER to faculty and students, increasing use of OER, and documenting critical measures. The presenters will share how the targeting of developmental education courses and high enrollment classes ensure students have the learning materials necessary on day one of class (or before) without having to break the bank.  

Presenters: Lisa C. Young, Ph.D., Faculty Director, Center for Teaching & Learning, Scottsdale Community College; Paul Golisch, CIO & Dean of Information Technology, Paradise Valley Community College

Webinar will be shown in the TLC at each campus, no RSPV necessary. PCC Librarians will be in attendance at each campus to provide resources and connect with faculty interested in OER.

Thursday, December 11 - Grading that Motivates and Retains Students

11:00-12:00 (NISOD)

How we grade says a lot about our teaching philosophy and our priorities in the classroom. In this webinar, we'll investigate how that plays out in student motivation and retention. We'll look at characteristics of effective and ineffective grading. I'll share student feedback and lessons learned from a system I've been piloting for several semesters. Finally, we'll discuss some of the challenges we face with grades and some possible solutions.
