WELCOME TO FALL 2018 FLEX DAY AT FULLERTON COLLEGE!
Staff Development is pleased to have supported department activities as well as planned a menu of breakout sessions. This year’s sessions are Equity- focused and address how we serve those students in groups that our Equity data show to be disproportionately impacted in terms of indicators such as basic skills completion, course success and degree certificate completion. Soon after the beginning of the semester, we will follow up this flex day with a survey asking for your feedback on the effectiveness of your experience of flex day: the offerings, the proposal process and ideas for next time around. We strive to meet faculty’s professional learning needs, and we hope the flex day has provided meaningful opportunities for collaborative learning and planning to improve our practice ascommitted educators!
