League of Innovation Learning Summit – My thoughts of Arrival

Posted on Updated on

The 2016 Learning Summit is being held at the Omni Montelucia in Paradise Valley, Arizona, June 12-15 and is hosted by the Maricopa County Community College District. I arrived this morning with my fellow Wake Technical Community College faculty members, Carla Osborne, Instructor of Advertising and Graphic Design, and Angela Becquette, Dean of Computer Technologies.

The Learning Summit is a working retreat for college teams to connect with colleagues and to share experiences, discuss issues, and explore strategies for overcoming obstacles and meeting challenges related to learning. The 2016 Learning Summit theme is Student Success and Completion. 

I hope to examine effective practices in the five topic areas that are the focus of the program, Specifically:

  • Student Learning Outcomes
  • Student Engagement
  • Faculty and Staff Engagement
  • Organizational Culture
  • Quality, Inquiry, and Accountability

By the way, if you’re interested, download a copy of the Learning Summit draft program.

SUMMIT FORMAT

After an opening plenary session on the first evening, the summit will devote a half-day to each topic over the course of the conference. An interactive Symposium will kick off each half-day session, and be followed by a set of concurrent Forums and Roundtables led by community college educators and scholars. Summit participants such as myself will be engaged as full partners in the Summit since plenary and concurrent sessions are designed to be interactive. That will be fairly exciting.

Each half-day session should end with Conversations about Learning, time designated for college teams to meet and discuss what they have learned and how it may apply to their institutions. Since I’m here with a small team, this will really be a fantastic opportunity to look at how we’re running with models of student success and engagement, but to take a good, long, look at what we can do to improve.

This is going to be fun.

This session was set to be a slight scary one, but the attendees were nice, ready to ask and answer questions, and open to taking notes. Tee experience was very, very positive one. I believe we’ll be doing this again, and I find that these situations seem stressful on the outside, but once you begin… its just as easy as it could be.

This conference opened the door for me.I look forward to presenting more in the future.

 

GRD/WEB/SGD Faculty Meeting: Faculty Professional Development Conference 2015

Posted on Updated on

On April 2nd, 2015 at Wake Tech’s North Campus, Alison Consol and Cindy Foster addressed the GRD, WEB and SGD department faculty at the Wake Tech Faculty Professional Development Conference from 10:00am until noon

GRD/WEB/SGD Faculty Meeting: Faculty Professional Development Conference 2015

This meeting was very enjoyable, including a greater understanding of

Advising 102

This was a great method of determining the best ways to encourage students to sign up for certifications, diplomas, and our associate degrees. The emphasis here was on completions, math courses which could be accepted, and updates to evaluate course progressions, and the ease of helping students to complete their diploma programs by helping them to register for graduation.

In the second half of the department meeting, we focused on EPIC preparedness. This was equal parts course preparedness, menu building, and standards. This concluded with a longer, more team-oriented approach entitled “On The Border”.

The only strange part of this encounter was that a faculty member from chemistry signed up for our department meeting. That guy had no idea what we were talking about, and frankly didn’t really care about our policies. So, that was a waste of his time, and he chose to stay until the end. I’d do this again every semester.


Alison Consol is the head of both the Advertising and Graphic Design department, and Web Design Department at Wake Tech Community College.
Cindy Foster is the head of the Simulation and Video Game Development department at Wake Tech Community College

College Central Network Flyers: We Have The Winners!

Posted on Updated on

This year, Wake Tech Community College has fully vetted College Central Network (CCN)and CollegeCentalNetwork.com as our official hiring network. College Central is one of the most visited entry-level job sites on the Internet. It provides both students and alumni with the ability to search their respective colleges’ or universities’ secure jobs databases, plus CCN’s Jobs Central national job board, with millions of jobs posted to date. The site also features valuable content geared toward entry-level job seekers.

In an effort to get the word out to students, the school has requested that the Advertising and Graphic Design Department run the materials in our classes as a project or extra credit project. Out of 4 potential candidates, 2 final winners were both chosen from my class: Kristine Kelly and Heather Heffner.

Its always a pleasure to create projects that the school can use. It was doubly good to see actual flyers hanging around the school. We were allowed to use the new Wake Tech Logo, and the students were able to add QR codes to the flyers, which was a really nice surprise. I think it earned us some extra points.

A special thank you to Rhonda Pickett for working with us on this job. The Advertising and Graphic Design Department at Wake Tech is always ready to help, whether its a class run by Tyler Dockery, Marsha Mills, Woody Hayes, or Alison Consol. Go Wake Tech!
