Teaching with Open Educational Resources (OER)
Location: BH 284
Presenters: Gloria Sabatelli, Neil Foley, and Karie Muir
Are you interested in learning how instructors use Open Educational Resources (OER)
in their teaching? This session will include an introduction to OER, followed by
a panel of faculty who will reflect on their OER journey and share tips for new users.
Open Educational Resources are free, openly licensed, and open-access teaching materials.
OER reduce financial access barriers to students by lowering the costs of textbooks
and course supplies, helping to make higher education more equitable and accessible.
Digital Literacies: It’s a Plural Affair
Location: BH 286
Presenters: Julia Tulba, Dr. Diana Campbell, and Heather Darrington
The term "digital literacy" is a bit of a misnomer because it is not just one strategy
for teaching and learning, but rather many. Digital literacies comprise everything
from finding and analyzing digital texts to creating videos, websites, or social media
posts and putting them into digital form. In this session, participants will learn
how to effectively use digital literacy in the classroom to motivate students with
meaningful, relevant projects.
How to use ACE Student Resources and Advisement
Location: BH 288
Presenters: Dr. Natacia Owens and Elizabeth Bowser
Every student at BC3 is supported through multiple resources, but not every student
knows what is available to them. In this session, we will explore the resources available
to students through BC3’s Academic Center for Enrichment (ACE) and how faculty can
engage at any step. In this session, participants will walk through student scenarios
and become knowledgeable on how students can thrive using supports that are in place
for academics and personal matters.
BC3 Faculty Orientation
Location: BH 290
Presenters: Sherri Mack and Paula Crider
New to BC3? Are you a returning faculty member with questions about BC3 processes
or resources? Come find out more! Information will be shared on how to navigate the
campus, e.g., email access, MyBC3, important contact information and resources, parking
passes, HR information, and much more.
Any faculty with Regular Part-Time status must attend in order to maintain that status.
