We are around this summer and hope you will check back for updates.
MCC has decided to cancel the New Faculty Orientation that was scheduled on 1/20/16. The office of Professional Development is available to meet with any newly hired faculty. Please contact us if you would like to set up an individual meeting at x3661.
We are in the testing phase of Atomic Learning. As we finalize access to the software, we will be working on creating opportunities for faculty and staff to take advantage of the variety of resources available. Get those PD earbuds ready…
We hope your Thanksgiving went well and that you were able to enjoy enough food to help get you through these final weeks of the fall semester. We are eager to roll out Atomic Learning and are also working to prepare the New Faculty Orientation in January. Don’t let the cold weather slow you down. Enjoy some hot chocolate, tea, or coffee in our TLRC’s!
As we gear up for this Thursday’s NFO, please keep in mind that we will be touring both our Bedford and Lowell campuses. The tours consist of walking, so please dress appropriately (sounds like it should be hot and humid). If you have any mobility issues, please contact our office. Also, make sure to bring in a USB drive or access your files through the cloud in order to upload materials into your Blackboard course shells. We look forward to seeing everyone.
The PD office will be around all summer. We will be working to plan for the ’15-’16 academic year including PD opportunities, New Faculty Orientations, Professional Day, and introducing more online PD opportunities. Stop by our office if you have ideas you would like to share. We are located in SA 109 and always welcome new and familiar faces.
Good morning all! Thank you to the 300+ people who registered for next week’s Professional Day. Many workshops were filled within the first week of registration and we anticipate great dialogues among colleagues. See you all soon.
We had some great conversations at last night’s Adjunct Open House in Bedford. Remember, there is another Adjunct Open House happening in Lowell on 10/27/14! This is open to all new and returning adjunct faculty…come join us and have a snack with your colleagues. Specific details are in Newscaster.
