The Online Teaching Conference is presented annually by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office Telecommunications and Technology Infrastructure Program’s, (TTIP), CCC TechConnect Grant. TTIP was created by Budget Act language in fiscal year 1996-97 to provide system wide technical innovations and support to coordinate activities that maximize the system’s investment in technology. Under this program the TechConnect grant (3C Media Solutions, CCC Confer, @ONE, and the Online Teaching Conference) provides a coordinated platform of technology products, services, trainings, and support to students, faculty, and staff throughout the California community colleges’ decentralized infrastructure. Specifically, the Online Teaching Conference, which began over 17 years ago, is an event for faculty, staff and administrators who are engaged or interested in online education, including delivery of online services, emerging technologies, student success, library and technical support. As an inter-segmental conference focused on curriculum, pedagogy and technology to better online instruction and learning and improve student success, the Online Teaching Conference is a great opportunity for educators to spend time with colleagues, sharing knowledge, imparting and receiving best practices, and learning from other’s experiences.

The value of a college education is essential to individual opportunity and national competitiveness. Today’s national dialogue reflects this in many ways, from questions about how much college is needed, to whether college is affordable or not, to differences in who goes to college.

In this context, setting goals for college attainment helps to focus public dialogue, identify barriers to completion and attainment, and target resources to specific challenges. Yet, an analysis of educational attainment goals raises questions about who is served? What educational institutions get resources? And how is success measured based on the different beneficiaries?

Educational Testing Service (ETS), American Council on Education (ACE) and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education are excited to address these questions and more in a forum titled: “Why the Nation Needs to Do College Attainment Better.” We invite you to join us and hear perspectives from a diverse group of higher education thought leaders.

June 18-21: Study topics in-depth at summer school

The CFT Union Summer School equips local leaders with the powerful skills to organize successful campaigns to build high-quality public education, involve members in union activities, increase the political voice of educators and establish excellent representation and collective bargaining programs.

The program is geared for emerging and veteran local leaders who want to take their skills to the next level. The week is filled with rigorous workshops, motivated and skilled trainers, and applied learning. There is also the opportunity to share best practices with local leaders from across the state and to find inspiration in one another’s work. Join us for this exciting week-long, union leadership program!

Summer School will take place at UCLA's Luskin Conference Center. This year we are offering four courses, including one new class. In addition, we are offering a new two-day course for union teams. There are also evening workshops.

Designing, Implementing, and Facilitating Faculty Learning Communities

Evidence shows that Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) provide effective “deep learning” that encourages and supports faculty to investigate and engage new (to them) methods of teaching and to assess resulting change in student learning. Implementation Science confirms that FLCs provide the most effective way to implement and sustain teaching and learning innovations for faculty and staff. This institute will guide faculty and administrators interested in FLCs through issues and examples of the design, implementation, and facilitation of FLCs.

There are three levels of Advisor Certification. The first two levels are Certified Advisor I and II. The third level is designated as Master Advisor. The requirements for levels I and II each include the satisfactory completion of a total of fifteen (15) clock hours. The requirements for Master Advisor include the satisfactory completion a total of 15 clock hours. Each course requires a minimum of two hours and ten minutes of seat time (the equivalent of 2.5 hours of clock time) with 50 minutes equated to one hour. Six required courses must be completed for Certified Advisor I. Six additional courses, four core courses and two optional courses, are required and must be completed for Certified Advisor II.

All of the Advisor I and II requirements plus an additional eight (8) courses — four required and four optional — plus the teaching of two (2) Advisor courses or four (4) student courses — must be completed to be certified as a Master Advisor. Courses taught do not necessarily need to be taught at only ASACC conferences. Other presentations will be considered on a case by case basis for awarding credit for this requirement.

With declining enrollments and tight budgets, it’s more important than ever before for today’s community and technical colleges to re-evaluate their brands (or lack of one) and determine if it’s time to start from scratch or do a refresh -- all with the college’s president as the brand leader.

Rebranding your college is not just about a logo or tagline. Your brand represents a promise to students and stakeholders. It tells them what to expect every time they interact with staff, faculty and others on campus and in the classroom.

Developing and sustaining your college’s brand takes a concerted effort on the part of the marketing team and the president. Whether recruiting new students, talking to current students, relaying important messages to business and legislative leaders, or reaching out to other constituencies, your brand messaging must be strategic, clear and consistent. Your website, promotional materials, outreach, social media, marketing initiatives, recruitment efforts, admissions and student services -- all should speak in harmony, telling your college’s story in a single, cohesive voice.

NCMPR’s Summer Institute 2018, for marketing managers and presidents, is all about taking a strategic approach to rebranding, starting with research to determine current perceptions, going through the creative process, and ending with a successful rollout.

Specific topics in this one-and-a-half-day workshop include:

* Branding trends in higher education.
* When to consider a rebrand.
* Institutional branding vs. athletics branding.
* Budgeting for a rebrand (without breaking the bank).
* The all-important role of the president (forming a rebranding coalition; defining the decision-making process).
* Choosing an agency.
* The rebranding process (scope of work; getting everyone on board; data gathering; creative).
* Rolling out a new brand.
* Pitfalls to avoid.
* Sustaining and marketing the new brand in the future.

Communicators are encouraged to bring their presidents for this informative and interactive workshop.

Within the League are two major organizations which share a common mission, staff and fiscal resources: the California Community College Trustees (CCCT) and the Chief Executive Officers of the California Community Colleges (CEOCCC). CCCT has a 21-member board of directors elected by the 72 local governing boards. CEOCCC has a 15-member board of directors elected by the local community college chancellors, superintendents and presidents. These boards meet approximately six (6) times a year. At those meetings action is taken on education policy issues before the state Board of Governors and the legislature. Policy direction also is provided to staff concerning statewide educational policy, research initiatives, publications, workshops, and conferences. To coordinate the League organizations and their affiliates and to assure their adequate support, each organization selects representatives to serve on the League Board of Directors (four representatives each from CCCT and CEOCCC, two each from Association of California Community College Administrators [ACCCA] and California Community Colleges Classified Senate [4CS]). The Board of Directors establishes the budget and dues, employs and evaluates the chief executive officer, and approves a staff organization structure. The Board of Directors also establishes and evaluates the annual education policy agenda and annual legislative program.
