An Opportunity for International Collaboration

Angela Martin, TC3’s campus liaison for COIL, and Amber Gilewski, will discuss their experience “COILing” their courses this semester. Tompkins Cortland is now a member of the SUNY COIL(Collaborative Online International Learning) initiative, where instructors in New York can collaborate with instructors from all around the world. The roundtable will discuss the COIL initiative: how it works and how to become involved.

Wednesday December 6

Bad Feminist

Final get together in a series of monthly discussions about Roxane Gay's book, Bad Feminist, and the condition of modern women focusing on the essay, "What We Hunger For."

If there's an aspect of teaching that you would like to discuss with your colleagues, now is the time to get onto the CTC calendar. Discussion is informal and anyone can lead. No PowerPoint required.

We get very positive feedback on sessions where teachers present their scholarly and artistic achievements. If you have something in that vein to share with your colleagues, by all means, let us know. Let's celebrate this fantastic faculty together!

Talk to Barbara Kobritz in the Library, or send an email to schedule a date. But do it soon! It's never too early to sign up for next semester.

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. Click on the "Read more" link for specific program guidelines, and watch for an informational Roundtable during the first week of classes.

Connecting, Collaborating and Celebrating the Art of Teaching

CCCAT will be held at Community College of the Finger Lakes on April 20, 2018. Mark your calendar now for another great opportunity to share with teachers. The conference consistently gets enthusiastic responses from participants, who spend the day sharing teaching ideas with faculty from seven area community colleges. AND: Please think about presenting. We will be looking for at least three breakout sessions to be presented by TC3 faculty. You do amazing things. Why not share the wealth?
