Connecting, Collaborating, and Celebrating the Art of Teaching (CCCAT) Conference
TC3, main campus in Dryden (map)
Friday, April 22, 2016
8:30am - 3:30pm
CCCAT features breakout sessions led by community college faculty, focusing on practical ideas for teaching at the community college level. The keynote speaker is Alfred E. Guy, Jr., R.W.B. Lewis Director of Writing and an Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs at Yale University. His talk is entitled "Writing, Reflection, and Personation". You can read more about him and find details for the conference on the CCCAT website, which includes the schedule and workshop descriptions. Note that this conference is designed for college faculty, although much of the content should be useful in your high school and concurrent enrollment classes. We have heard positive feedback from past CollegeNow participants, though some did not realize that sessions would not be geared toward high school faculty.
The College is covering the $40 registration fee; continental breakfast and lunch is provided. There are a limited number of spots available; you must register no later than Wednesday, April 6th). Your registration status will be confirmed by April 11th. This counts towards your professional development requirements for TC3's CollegeNow program. Preference is given to those who cannot attend the August CollegeNow Conference.
