What's New at the CTC?

Here's what teachers had to say about the second annual Connecting, Collaborating and Celebrating the Art of Teaching Conference held April 11 at Onondaga Community College

               "Great conference, great keynote, great opportunity to learn new best practices for quick application into my classroom."

               "This conference is a great way to network with colleagues who are nearby and colleagues from other disciplines."

               "The conference was a great experience. The content, learning, and networking aspects were wonderful."

              "It was a great day, went by fast and felt engaged. Attention span also better when the topics are applicable and practical."

              "Thank you for a great conference. It was an inspiring and uplifting event."

The CTC will have information about next year's conference starting in the fall.

Roundtables for Week of April 21

Monday, April 21      Noon      CTC

Using Skype for Class Guests

Reaching beyond the classroom by inviting cyber speakers and participants for long distance interaction. Have you ever wanted to invite a guest speaker to class who does not live close by? How about that author or international partner you would like your students to interact with during your course? It’s all possible with a little planning and use of Skype! Learn how in our CTC Roundtable.
Presented by: "Sue" Stafford

Monthly Reading & Discussion Group

The monthly Reading & Discussion Group provides that much-sought-after opportunity: a chance to talk with other teachers about your shared experience. Each month we read an article or book chapter about some aspect of teaching and get together for discussion. Fourth Wednesday of the month from 4-5:30 in the CTC.
Next Meeting: April 23           
Reading: Parts 3 and 4 of Multiplication is for White People by Lisa Delpit. The Library has six nooks available with the book already downloaded.

Every day at the CTC

The CTC door is always open. If you need some space to spread out and work, or if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing place to chat with colleagues between classes or over lunch, please make yourself at home.

We have three computers, a black and white printer, a color printer and a scanner to help with your work. We also have comfy sofas and chairs where you can read or chat, a microwave for heating your lunch, and some professional reading you might want to peruse. And check out our photo gallery, curated by TC3's own Harry Littell.
