Professional Development

Concurrent enrollment instructors are required to participate in annual professional development workshops at least once each year.

Creating an Authentic College Classroom


January 18, 2017, 3-4pm

This webinar, brought to you by NACEP (National Alliance for Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships), will look at the differences in teaching a high school course versus a college course, including varying expectations for rigor, independent and outside of class student work, scheduling, and classroom culture. The webinar has three excellent presenters, one of whom may be familiar to you as she was the keynote speaker at our 2014 CollegeNow Conference.

  • Dr. Melinda Karp - Community College Research Center, NY
  • Mr. Jan Pikul - Bridgeport Regional Aquaculture Science and Technology Education, CT
  • Mr. Paul Finch - Falcon School District 49, CO

If you wish to participate, please email Jennie Patteson (, by Tuesday, January 17, to register. She will need to know your name, email, school, and that you are a concurrent enrollment instructor with Tompkins Cortland CollegeNow. You can also register on MyLearningPlan You are not required to use MLP to register, but if you do, your information will be forwarded to NACEP so that you are registered for the webinar; once we confirm that you attended the webinar, we will record your attendance on MyLearningPlan.

The webinar will be recorded and will be posted here the week of the 23rd.

Using MyLearningPlan

CollegeNow professional development is co-sponsored by TST BOCES School Improvement Services and utilizes their MyLearningPlan system for tracking registration and completion.

Register for CollegeNow Workshops via MyLearningPlan. Even if your district is outside the TST region and uses a different MyLearningPlan catalog, you must register within the TST BOCES catalog because CollegeNow workshops are not listed in other catalogs.

Logging in to MyLearningPlan

Logging into MyLearningPlan requires a username and password. If this is your first time using MyLearningPlan, contact your district's MyLearningPlan administrator to obtain your username. If your district does not participate in MyLearningPlan, you may create your own account at the time of registration by clicking on "I'm a New User" after enrolling in your activities. If you do not remember your username or password, click Login Help

Dropping or Changing Registrations

To change your workshops at the Conference, log in to MyLearningPlan, then click on "Change my Sessions" in the Actions section to select new options. If you cannot attend, you will need to log into MyLearningPlan, click on the activity, and then click the "Drop" link in the Actions section near the bottom; this notifies CollegeNow that you cannot attend and frees up the seat for another.

Obtaining a Certificate of Completion

In order to obtain a certificate of completion for a workshop you attended, Log in to MyLearningPlan. Once your activity is recorded as Completed (on the Requests screen or your Portfolio), you can click on the activity, and then click on "Print Certificate" in the Actions section.
