Dear Sacramento City College Colleagues:
Greetings SCC Panther colleagues!
As we share the next few weeks of professional development, we also express much thanks and appreciation for your participation in professional development and convocation. As we reflect upon the learning, what are the goals and objectives we set to implement into making the semester successful for ourselves that strengthen student success? In doing so, we are asking for a few minutes of your time to participate in the survey, providing us with important information and feedback regarding the programming.
Please submit the survey by Friday, September 6, 2019. Meanwhile, if you have any questions, please reply directly to Tyler Wyckoff at WyckofT@scc.losrios.edu and myself at Norman.email@example.com.

Videos of the Week
In every workplace, there are three basic kinds of people: givers, takers and matchers. Organizational psychologist Adam Grant breaks down these personalities and offers simple strategies to promote a culture of generosity and keep self-serving employees from taking more than their share.
Shonda Rhimes, the titan behind Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder, is responsible for some 70 hours of television per season, and she loves to work. “When I am hard at work, when I am deep in it, there is no other feeling,” she says. She has a name for this feeling: The hum. The hum is a drug, the hum is music, the hum is God’s whisper in her ear. But what happens when it stops? Is she anything besides the hum? In this moving talk, join Rhimes on a journey through her “year of yes” and find out how she got her hum back.

Re: What’s happening in college—is it real?
I just read about a senior engineering student who was presenting a design project in an upper-division business communications course. In the presentation, he talked about what he would do if he were a “real” engineer. His teacher asked him what it was about what he was doing that wasn’t “real” engineering. He’d designed the project. He was presenting it to a group of his peers. He answered, “It’s school—not real engineering.”

On the first day of class, nobody is behind yet.
That was always my favorite part of the first week of classes. Nobody was behind yet. There was nothing significant to grade. Nothing had gone off the rails. Everybody (or almost everybody) showed up. Students and I were ready to go.
