Join us over coffee & donuts to have open discussions with fellow faculty on various teaching and learning topics. Faculty are encouraged to share best practices, successes, challenges, and tips and tricks. Learning Cafés are meant to be a safe space where faculty can speak freely without judgment. These are informal in nature so there is no structured instruction. Learning Cafés take place in-person at the South Campus. For those unable to attend, please feel free to join the discussion board on the same topic, located on our CAE Faculty Hub. Topics are released monthly along with a registration link via college email. Space is limited so register early. The CAE looks forward to plenty of enriching conversation and intriguing ideas to help our SCC faculty flourish in the classroom.
Upcoming Learning Cafés:
March 2023: Demystifying Accessible Learning Materials
Description: An open discussion on accessibility and accessible learning materials. Topics can include the responsibilities faculty have under the AODA; how to create accessible documents, presentations, and videos; and how to support students with disabilities in your classrooms (in-person and virtual). Using accessible learning materials ensures that all students have equal opportunity to learn, and it can seem daunting to create these opportunities given time constraints and technical skill levels. Let's talk about how we can create materials with accessibility in mind, what tools can be used, and how we can streamline the process. For those unable to attend, please feel free to join the discussion board on the same topic, located on our CAE Faculty Hub.
