Recently, we reached out to professional development contacts throughout the CCC system and inquired about campus flex day plans. We learned that at least 12 campuses have flex events scheduled on campus on Friday, January 12, 2018. In an effort to support those campus and reach faculty/staff who may not be able to get to campus, but still want to learn, @ONE (Online Network of Educators) is hosting its first Untethered Flex Day. Our online sessions are free and available to anyone who is interested in learning more about the topics. Please note, flex credit will be provided at the discretion of your campus flex committee.
Research continues to show that community college students are more likely to succeed in online classes if they sense that their instructor cares about them. For this reason, we’ve selected two topics for Untethered Flex that are designed to support faculty foster effective communications with students and a strong sense of presence in their students’ learning.
