The Online Teaching Conference is presented annually by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office Telecommunications and Technology Infrastructure Program’s, (TTIP), CCC TechConnect Grant. TTIP was created by Budget Act language in fiscal year 1996-97 to provide system wide technical innovations and support to coordinate activities that maximize the system’s investment in technology. Under this program the TechConnect grant (3C Media Solutions, CCC Confer, @ONE, and the Online Teaching Conference) provides a coordinated platform of technology products, services, trainings, and support to students, faculty, and staff throughout the California community colleges’ decentralized infrastructure. Specifically, the Online Teaching Conference, which began over 17 years ago, is an event for faculty, staff and administrators who are engaged or interested in online education, including delivery of online services, emerging technologies, student success, library and technical support. As an inter-segmental conference focused on curriculum, pedagogy and technology to better online instruction and learning and improve student success, the Online Teaching Conference is a great opportunity for educators to spend time with colleagues, sharing knowledge, imparting and receiving best practices, and learning from other’s experiences.

The value of a college education is essential to individual opportunity and national competitiveness. Today’s national dialogue reflects this in many ways, from questions about how much college is needed, to whether college is affordable or not, to differences in who goes to college.

In this context, setting goals for college attainment helps to focus public dialogue, identify barriers to completion and attainment, and target resources to specific challenges. Yet, an analysis of educational attainment goals raises questions about who is served? What educational institutions get resources? And how is success measured based on the different beneficiaries?

Educational Testing Service (ETS), American Council on Education (ACE) and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education are excited to address these questions and more in a forum titled: “Why the Nation Needs to Do College Attainment Better.” We invite you to join us and hear perspectives from a diverse group of higher education thought leaders.

June 18-21: Study topics in-depth at summer school

The CFT Union Summer School equips local leaders with the powerful skills to organize successful campaigns to build high-quality public education, involve members in union activities, increase the political voice of educators and establish excellent representation and collective bargaining programs.

The program is geared for emerging and veteran local leaders who want to take their skills to the next level. The week is filled with rigorous workshops, motivated and skilled trainers, and applied learning. There is also the opportunity to share best practices with local leaders from across the state and to find inspiration in one another’s work. Join us for this exciting week-long, union leadership program!

Summer School will take place at UCLA's Luskin Conference Center. This year we are offering four courses, including one new class. In addition, we are offering a new two-day course for union teams. There are also evening workshops.

Training includes a new two-day course for local union teams, June 20-21 (Wednesday mid-morning through Thursday evening).

Designing, Implementing, and Facilitating Faculty Learning Communities

Evidence shows that Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) provide effective “deep learning” that encourages and supports faculty to investigate and engage new (to them) methods of teaching and to assess resulting change in student learning. Implementation Science confirms that FLCs provide the most effective way to implement and sustain teaching and learning innovations for faculty and staff. This institute will guide faculty and administrators interested in FLCs through issues and examples of the design, implementation, and facilitation of FLCs.
