The TLC can help with instructional design, curriculum design and universal design (accessibility), whether you are creating a brand new course or just wanting to revise and enhance an existing one. And this assistance is not limited to just faculty or online delivery; if you run a training as a department on a regular basis and want to make it more engaging, we're here to help! We believe that all learning at CCD should reflect best practices in effective teaching strategies as well as advance CCD's mission of creating a supportive and inclusive environment.
Here you will find resources to help enhance learning in the classroom, online, or in a staff workshop or conference presentation. If you need one-on-one assistance and support or are not sure where to begin your project, please feel free to contact the specialists in the TLC: Jane Binns, Jennifer Ferguson, Jennifer Maxwell, Aysenur Ozyer or Wendeth Rauf.
Campus is EAB’s advisor communication platform that was deployed in summer, 2018. This platform allows for more efficient and targeted communications from advisors to specific groups of students. An early alert system is part of this platform, so in an effort to increase efficiency and create cost savings, we have discontinued the use of Stear, replacing the early alert program with the tools in Campus.
- Automated email system requesting faculty & instructors to report on students who are at risk
- Reporting can occur directly from email
- Logging into Campus platform not required as part of the process for faculty & instructors
- Alerts can be processed individually, helping advisors prioritize intervention efforts
Guides for Using Campus
Open Educational Resources (OER) are course materials that can be used free of charge. Some of these resources are curated through membership organizations like the National Repository of Online Courses (NROC), and others are freely available in online databases.
To learn more about OER, you can sign up to take a renowned online training from the Washington State Board for Community & Technical Colleges. It typically runs once a semester, but it is also available as a self-paced course. Send the TLC a copy of your certificate of completion to earn five hours of professional development.
