Distance Learning Training and Resources for Educators

CCC Convocation 07

Distance Learning Awards and Recognitions

We’ve made great strides in distant learning over the past year. 45 faculty members have been Blackboard certified through our Blackboard Boot camps and 60 (100%) have met the professional development requirements for teaching online here at CCC. Ten faculty members (DL Pioneers) spent the past year learning a variety of new online teaching techniques and given the technical resources to upgrade their skills and courses thanks to the Title III Grant. Each one of them met ALL their DL goals and objectives as they related to the grant and were awarded certificates of achievement for their efforts. They will now be mentoring another ten in more advanced online teaching methods including incorporating video and audio content into their online courses.

I believe our online course offerings across curriculums have more continuity, better methodology and technical (and visual) sophistication than ever before thanks to all the professional development opportunities made available through the Title III grant.

Laurie Freshwater was awarded the Excellence in DL Award for 2006 – 07 at this years convocation for taking her teaching methodology and online courses to a higher level this past year.

Skip Kemp was awarded the Tom Harrigan DL award for most improved in both his online teaching skills and the courses he is designing and teaching online. Tom Harrigan passed away last year and this award is dedicated to him and his commitment to excellence in online instruction.

A meeting is planned for later in August for the Phase II Distance Learning Team.
