Deans Event

A few weeks ago, on March 18th, the 5-Star Consortium hosted a lunch-and-learn event for Deans at Shoreline Community College.

The goal of this event was for Deans and other administrators to know exactly what it is the 5-Star Consortium does for their faculty, and to have a taste of the experience. Approximately 25 people came together, shared ideas and left with a sense of accomplishment!

 Here's what attendees are saying about the Deans event:

"The active learning was so well-done! Thank you!"

"I appreciated experiencing the various best practices."
"I really liked the interactivity and opportunity to get to know others. Learning from each other as well as from the facilitators."

"I was more engaged in learning about the HR policies, for example, because of the way it was done."

Deans can now tell new faculty the benefits of attending - helping them (especially brand new faculty) become aware of the college culture, learn teaching strategies that they can implement the next class, and network with other faculty from a variety of disciplines.

Thank you to all of the faculty developers, organizers and participants!

Stay tuned for more from the 5-Star Consortium!
