Wayfinding OnlineNavigating the Virtual Landscape Together Fall Design Lab Series

Dear 3CSN Wayfinding Community,

We hope that this email finds you well and safe.

Over the summer we offered a series of free four-part Design Labs to provide community college professionals and students the opportunity to come together with colleagues across the state to delve more deeply into course and program design. The response was overwhelming, and these sessions reached capacity quickly. Many of you asked for an opportunity to participate in the fall.

We are pleased to let you know that registration is now open for these fall Design Labs!
Professional learning badges will be awarded for completion and may be used for flex credit (check with your campus for eligibility). Read more about these sessions and register below! Each registration covers all four sessions.
Updated Title and Dates!

In this design lab, 3CSN Coordinator Crystal Kiekel and Pierce College tutors will join tutors, SI leaders, mentors, and other learning assistance professionals from across the state to consider ways in which peers can co-create virtual learning environments for students that are highly structured, supportive, and focused on building the affective and cognitive skills necessary for success.

Students and educators alike will reconnect with their “why” and consider how online learning works from an educator as well as a student perspective, ultimately creating partnerships that will provide a sense of belonging in online environments as well as greater success college-wide. Students are strongly encouraged to register.

Hello, Is it me you’re looking for?: e-portfolios as tools for engagement, assessment, and completion

Looking for a way to engage students while assessing their learning? Would you like to help them learn to showcase personal and professional growth in the classroom, throughout college, and beyond? Want to practice making one yourself?

Join 3CSN coordinators Kelan Koning, Diana Bonilla Hein, and students for this four-part interactive design lab to learn about the various possibilities for, and value of, eportfolios and to design one yourself. Wix, Google Sites, Canvas ePortfolio and Portfolium will be explored as options.

We will build relationships and knowledge together, focusing on effective online pedagogy and student-centered active learning, and directly apply our learning and metacognitive reflections to design elements of our fall courses.
