Palomar College Learning For Success

Online Teaching Conference 2017

This year we had a really big group from Palomar attend the annual Online Teaching Conference presented by CCC TechConnect.  CCC TechConnect is a grant-funded program that offers the CCC’s technology resources such as 3C Media Solutions, CCC Confer, @ONE, and the Professional Learning Network.

The OTC conference provided numerous opportunities to learn about best practices for teaching online and using technology, as well as, information on the state of online education in the CCC’s.

Here’s the program:

Several of the workshops and keynotes were provided as WebCasts for all to see:

For those who attended the conference, my question to you is, what was your biggest takeaway?


Digital Storytelling

We have an awesome opportunity to train a group of faculty/staff in the art of digital storytelling!   A big thank you to Roberta Cantow and our Strategic Planning Council for approving Strategic Planning Priority Funding (SPPF) for this opportunity.

If you’re like me, you may be wondering what digital storytelling is. On Thursday May 4th we held a webinar to learn more about the art of digital storytelling.  During the webinar we also learned more about the upcoming 3-day intensive training August 10th-12th and the 1-day training on Thursday August 17th (during plenary).

Digital storytelling could be used to tell your own personal story, a story about the work you do to serve students, or maybe have students tell stories, or to tell stories highlighting a theme, such as our 2017-2018 college theme of “Better Together”.

Here’s a flyer for more information on the digital storytelling program that will be held at Palomar:
