- Becoming a Better Teacher: Articles for New and Not-So-New Faculty01/2016Articles and PublicationsA couple of months ago a colleague asked me to recommend a book for his new faculty reading group. I rattled off the names of several, but then wondered if a packet of articles might not be a better option. When I started to identify articles, it came to me that the what-to-read dilemma for new and not-so-new faculty goes beyond the articles themselves. It is more about the categories of work on teaching and learning rather than individual pieces.
- Between the Lines of Our Pedagogy03/2016Articles and PublicationsOur teaching persona is expressed in how we go about shaping the learning environment. A purposeful integration of our teaching persona helps link students with content in subtle ways. This matters because we’re after an expression of teaching persona that plays a constructive role in creating a learning environment where learners thrive and teachers flourish.
- Beyond the Content: Creating Communities of Practice to Foster Adult Learning (Flex Thursday)12/2014Flex/PD - SpringJanuary 15, 2015. As faculty we design courses for content learning, by building communities of practice we enhance the learning environment and foster critical thinking. This 2-hour workshop will offer an overview of two theoretical models that support content learning through personal and community development.
- Board Tussle Over Race11/2015Articles and PublicationsAt Milwaukee Area Technical College, some students, faculty and community members feel the new, pro-business appointment process to the institution's board disenfranchises minorities.

- Breast Cancer Awareness Walk - Spring 201503/2015Flex/PD - SpringCome walk with us! The SCC Cultural Awareness Center invites everyone to join President Kathryn Jeffery and LRCCD Trustee Pamela Haynes for a Breast Cancer Awareness Walk, a Woman's History Month event.
- Broadening Pedagogical Knowledge by Learning from Other Disciplines01/2016Articles and PublicationsThe bulk of scholarship on teaching and learning continues to be embedded in our disciplines. It ends up there because that’s where it counts (if it does) and because there’s a long-standing and still fairly widely held belief that the teaching needed for a particular kind of content is unique. Unless you know the content, you can’t know how to teach it.

- Building community: Teaching at the Davis Center01/2016Flex/PD - SpringPresented by Don Palm and Michael Severson. As faculty and staff at the Davis Center, how can we work together formally and informally to help build the Center as a learning community? We have new programs, funded through the basic skills, SSSP and equity programs, to support student success–how can we integrate those programs into our courses? This session will provide us with a setting to discuss shared challenges and possible answers.
- Building Online Communities with Social Media02/2015Flex/PD - SpringThis class will provide you with a robust toolkit of tips, learning activities, and creative uses of emerging technologies to integrate into your courses.
- Built-in Self-Assessment: A Case for Annotation01/2016Articles and Publicationswe want students to be critical thinkers, we must routinely and explicitly give them structured practice opportunities to critically examine their own thinking. Squeezing two or three metacognitive activities into a hectic semester teaches students that such reflection is only for special occasions. Rather, student self-evaluation should be a daily course routine.
