Endings... and Beginnings
Congratulations to Dr. Zoila Tovar-Blank, the winner of the "How Well Do You Know Tech Tuesday?" Challenge!
Yes, the rumors are true – I am 3 months away from retirement*, which makes this my very last Tech Tuesday message to all of you. If there is anything that I have done in my 26 years here at CGCC (I began as an adjunct instructor in 1996) that I am most proud of, and hope will continue to have an impact, it is Technology Tuesdays.
*Technically, 3 months and 10 days – but who’s counting…?
15 years ago I took my first sabbatical, looking into technologies for instruction. Instead of the solo effort that I had anticipated, I found that every day I discovered something new that I would share with colleagues. By the end of that sabbatical year, an idea had formed – why not offer faculty development workshops on all of these awesome tools that were out there? From there, I asked my Chair, who asked the administration, who (in true Chandler-Gilbert fashion) said, “Sure – let’s give it a try!”
Here is my final challenge to all of you: Keep Tech Tuesday going in the future!!
To this end, I have created a 2022-23 Guest Blogger Signup Sheet – just pick ONE Tuesday during the 2022-23 academic year, and be a Tech Tuesday Guest Blogger for that date! You don’t even have to know right now what you would share; just make a commitment to share one awesome thing that you believe would benefit other faculty and their students.
For those of you who sign up, the CTLA will provide more specific information to you in the Fall as to how to submit your information for YOUR guest blog post.
As always, HAPPY TUESDAY!!
Did you know that there are now 100 Tech Tuesday (and Tech Tuesday-adjacent) blog posts on the CTLA's Teaching & Learning Blog?! It's true - this is my 100th blog post!!
You can always visit the blog at any time (Helpful Hint: Use the CTLA website search feature to quickly locate anything you might need!), but my parting gift to you is a complete PDF of the Spring 2020-Spring 2022 Teaching Tip blog posts, so that you have them for offline use.
