CCA Logo

The College hosts faculty weeks prior to the start of the fall semester, and after the end of the spring semester. All ranked faculty are required to attend faculty week events and be available for meetings scheduled by their program or division. Unranked faculty are invited to attend any faculty week event, and are required to attend any meetings specific to their course teaching assignments that semester. All new faculty (ranked and unranked) are required to attend new faculty orientation (held in January for spring hires).


Spring 2020 Faculty Week

The listings below are not comprehensive. Faculty should check with their chairs and program managers for any program specific meetings they should plan to attend.

Monday, May 11
Summer Online Teaching Kick-Off

10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

This is a required kick-off meeting for all faculty teaching online in summer. Please arrange to attend. The event will serve to set the groundwork for CCA's expectations for online teaching: using Moodle, building classes 90% asynchronously, and translating face-to-face activities to the online world to a high standard (including minimum universal design standards). The workshop will introduce these expectations and provide steps and resources to achieve them. It will end with helping faculty develop individual work plans to prepare their classes, including creating small learning communities among pairs or trios of faculty teaching similar types of things and planned check-ins with me, the libraries folks, or chairs and others who can support you. Faculty planning to teach fully online in fall are welcome to attend!
