The TLC can help with instructional design, curriculum design and universal design (accessibility), whether you are creating a brand new course, revising an existing course, or designing training for your staff, 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, Sally Cordrey, Jennifer Ferguson, Jennifer Maxwell, or Aysenur Ozyer.
Navigate is EAB’s advisor communication platform. EAB allows for more efficient and targeted communications from advisors to specific groups of students.
NTC indicates that a course has No Textbook Costs. This means that textbooks and other classroom/online materials are FREE. These materials include alternative instructional materials and resources, owned or licensed by the library (such as articles, books, ebooks, streaming videos), public domain materials, as well as Open Educational Resources (OER). No-cost courses/degrees do not guarantee that no cost to the institution will exist (for example, library fees, printing fees, high-cost course fees, and program fees).
Faculty/instructors should begin by having a conversation with their Department Chair. Once the vision, workload, timeline, and compensation/workload assignment is established, the faculty/instructor should work with the Teaching Learning Center throughout the development process. The Teaching-Learning Center ensures all materials meet WCAG Accessibility Guidelines and assists with instructional design as needed. The Teaching-Learning Center will also ensure all materials fall into Fair Use guidelines. Once the quality assurance process is complete, courses are approved as No Textbook Cost (NTC).
Please see CCD’s No Textbook Cost Guideline as well as the No Textbook Cost Form for more information.
