2013 Teaching Learning and Technology Showcase

Teaching and Learning Showcase

Join us for the 9th Annual Teaching & Learning Showcase on April 9, 2015

The showcase is an opportunity for faculty to highlight the innovative practices they are using to help students succeed.  Previously the "Teaching With Technology Showcase," this year we are expanding to feature high impact teaching practices in all areas. 

WHAT?  An open-house style showcase featuring GRCC faculty sharing their high impact practices.  The event is FREE and food will be provided.  We are also giving away one GoPro HERO camera - all attendees will be automatically entered into the drawing!

WHERE?  Sneden 108

WHEN?  Thursday, April 9, 2015 from 3:00 - 6:00

WHY? To learn new teaching techniques and to celebrate the great work faculty are doing to promote student learning

HOW? Faculty who are sharing their ideas will be "hosting" tables where they will discuss their practices and answer questions you may have

WHO? All GRCC faculty (full-time and adjunct) are invited to attend. 

Registration is not required, and you may stop in for as little or as long as you like.  If you have questions about the Showcase, email us at CTE@grcc.edu or call 616-234-2278.
