This 7 week online course runs from April 4 – May 21, 2016. Registered and waitlisted students should expect to receive an email notification by March 25 which will include instructions on how to access the course in the Canvas learning management system, and a detailed syllabus. This is a fast-paced course with exciting new projects utilizing Photoshop and Illustrator. Regular access to a computer or computer lab is a must.
Beginning January 2016, I will be the Activity Coordinator for Cabrillo's 5-year Title V grant. The grant has a heavy technology focus, including a student portal, new faculty design studio, and faculty professional development. It is a great opportunity to act as a full-time designer/trainer in distance pedagogy, collaborate with IT on distance technology upgrades to serve students, and provide mentor-based faculty professional development.
The Title V Project addresses the need to increase the number and proportion of high-need students who complete college on time. The project design has two foci: (1) provide individualized, technology-powered student support so that high-need students stay on an Associate Degree for Transfer track, and (2) design transfer courses as active/collaborative/technology-enabled, and as hybrid (partially taught online) to reduce seat time and promote academic success and timely completion.
Aloha Sargent and Audrey Blumeneau will be co-coordinating the activities of the Teaching and Learning Center. Denise Russo will be coordinating the Flex Calendar program.
