Introduction to Teaching at a Community College: Meet the Faculty (Drop-In) @ Online
Jan 29 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Have you ever considered a teaching career at a community college? This career can have high impact on students beginning their higher education and often includes a strong community focused work environment. This panel of faculty will discuss their experiences in community colleges in Iowa, Texas, and Southern California. The discussion will include their career path, what they like most about the community college setting, and common misconceptions about the career. Bring your questions and be prepared to explore this wonderful career path. This panel is the first of three related to exploring a teaching career at a community college. Future panels will be on strategies for getting hired at a community college, and inclusive teaching in the community college environment. This event takes place on Monday, January 29 at 2-3:30PM ET / 1-2:30PM CT / 12-1:30PM MT / 11AM-12:30PM PT.

Basic Presentation Skills: How to Resonate with Your Audience @ Career Center, Room 200
Jan 30 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

This workshop will help you articulate your information and content in a manner that is well received by a “non-specialist” audience increasing retention. By the conclusion of the workshop you will improve your understanding of how adults prefer to take-in, process, and synthesize new knowledge allowing your presentation to resonate with a disparate audience. You will learn your own primary, secondary, and tertiary preferences for taking-in new information, thereby mitigating subjectivity in your delivery, ensuring your presentation is relevant to an audience outside your career field.
