Skyline College and the Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning (CTTL) will be hosting its first-ever Skyline College Adjunct Faculty Teaching & Learning Symposium on Saturday, January 16, from 8:00am-2:30pm. Skyline College is committed to providing professional learning opportunities for its faculty, including adjunct professors whose professional lives often pose barriers to accessing quality professional development geared towards enhancing effective teaching practices. The Symposium will feature a special welcome and keynote delivered by Skyline College President, Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud, followed by a variety of teaching & learning workshops designed to provide faculty with practical strategies before they begin the Spring semester.
This adjunct-only event supports The Skyline College Promise by providing adjunct faculty with workshops and professional engagement that will help them deliver “meaningful and culturally relevant learning experiences” (The Skyline College Promise) particularly intended to foster student success in the first and second semesters of college. Because “robust support for faculty to deepen their excellence in teaching and learning is an essential component of student success” (The Skyline College Promise), the Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning (CTTL) has designed this 1-day event to support adjunct faculty’s commitment to refining and improving their classroom practices. No walk-up registrations will be accepted, so please RSVP by January 10, 2016 via the Eventbrite link at https://skylineadjunctsymposium.eventbrite.com.
