BE MINDFUL OF PAPER USE

Dear colleagues,

Happy New Year! It is that time again!

As you prepare your courses for the upcoming year, please be mindful of our aim to become as paperless as possible in Faculty. To achieve this goal, please:

  • post a copy of your course outline on your course Moodle- please do not print;
  • please post readings and handouts on Moodle – please do not print;

Please also note that ALL print jobs done through Central printing will require approval from the Main Faculty Office. This applies to teaching but not professor’s research accounts, of course.

We look forward to a great year….and a greener one!

Miles

NEW HANDBOOK FOR INSTRUCTORS

CoverThe Faculty of Education Handbook for Instructors has recently been updated and contains important information for both full-time and sessional instructors on such things as printing, course expenses, departmental policies, and more.  ALL instructors are asked to please visit the new Handbook page on this news blog to familiarize yourself with new guidelines for the upcoming academic year.

CAE GRADUATION

On September 7th, 18  adult learners will graduate  with their Certificate in Adult Education (CAE).  The celebration will be held at the Culinary Institute at 6:30pm.

For most of these grads completion of the CAE will give them their teaching credential for a teaching position at Holland College or for teaching trades in the high school system. Four grads are involved in education in the private sector. All courses were offered on a part-time basis and the students completed courses while holding down full-time employment – most completing their 12 courses within two years!

In addition, four individuals will be recognized  for completion of their BEd (HRD).

The guest speaker will be Jeff MacDonald, one of last year’s BEd (K-12) grads.

For more information, please contact Leona McIsaac-Moran.
