LINKS 9 Beyond the Classroom: Spring 2014 Events

Strengthening Ties between Classroom Teaching & Academic Support Services

3CSN, the professional development branch of the CCCCO’s Basic Skills Initiative, has several LINKS 9 events scheduled this semester that will likely be of interest to those of you in California's community colleges.  Beyond the Classroom:  Strengthening Ties between Classroom Teaching and Academic Support Services, is scheduled for Friday, 2/21/2014 at Cerritos College, Friday, 2/28/2014 at San Jose City College, and Saturday, 3/22/2014 at Merced College. Representative effective practices, challenges, and opportunities for collaboration will be explored in three key academic support areas:

  • libraries,
  • peer-assisted learning, and
  • noncredit.

This event has been scheduled at three locations to encourage broad participation. We hope to see you there.  College teams are encouraged to attend as this event is ideal for faculty (credit & non-credit), counselors, department chairs, program coordinators, BSI coordinators, deans, professional development leaders, learning center professionals and librarians.

We also have a link to the event flyer, which provides event details and the EventBrite registration links for all events. Please share this information with your campus colleagues and contact either one of us or your regional coordinator (see list below) if you have any questions.
