What's Happening at the CTC?

Connecting, Collaborating and Celebrating the Art of Teaching

The annual Connecting, Collaborating and Celebrating the Art of Teaching conference is ready to roll! Each year we receive many, many feedback comments from participants who appreciate spending a day with other teachers, learning from each other. If you’ve never attended, now’s a good time to come along and see what makes this conference “by teachers, for teachers” so special.

This year we will be at Finger Lakes Community College, in beautiful Canandaigua, on Friday, April 20. The web site has information about the keynote speaker and the schedule for the day. Information about the concurrent sessions has been emailed to faculty. If you need it again, contact Barbara Kobritz, CTC Coordinator, in the Library.

To register, send Barbara an email with your:

  • Name
  • Title/Rank
  • Discipline/Department
  • E-mail

The deadline for registration is March 9.

This conference is free for you. In keeping with our tradition, the cost of registration for TC3 participants will be covered through professional development funds from the College and the Foundation.

We hope to see you there!

Is there something you would like to discuss with your colleagues? It doesn't have to be fancy; no PowerPoint required. Anything you would like to talk about with your fellow teachers can be a Roundtable.

Contact Barbara Kobritz for more information.

Mentors and Partners Program (MAPP)

All regular and adjunct faculty are invited to participate in MAPP. You choose the focus of your mentorship or partnership. Maybe there's a special curriculum development piece you want to work on with a colleague. Maybe you're new to college teaching and would like to have a more experienced teacher to guide you through the first semester. Anything that improves teaching and learning is good, and there is a stipend for participating. You can contact Barbara Kobritz, CTC Coordinator, for more information.
