Roughly 1,000 High School Students Expected for Senior Day on Thur.
Senior Day is the college’s largest outreach event, providing students from area high schools an opportunity to visit campus.
Some 1,000 area high school seniors are expected to be here on Thursday (3/11/2010) morning for the annual Senior Day high school outreach event. It will be held from 8:30 a.m.-noon in the Gateway Plaza and pond area.
While here, students will have the opportunity to learn about Cypress College programs and services.
The event is the college’s largest outreach effort. It will feature exhibits from divisions, departments, clubs and other student organiza- tions for the duration of the event.
Three workshops are also scheduled in the Student Activities Conference Room:
“Getting Free Money to Fund Your College Education” at 9 a.m.
and 10 a.m.
“Choosing a College Major” at 9:20 a.m.
“Transfer Track” at 9:40 a.m.
In addition, students will be able to receive help completing the admissions application, participate in tours, and have some fun.
Distance Ed eam participates in Blackboard Exemplary Course Program
A Distance Education team recently completed the process of reviewing courses submitted to the 2010 Blackboard Exemplary Course Program. The team members included Elizabeth Hamman (SEM), Barbara Marshall (LA), Jessica Puma (Instructional Designer), and Jeanne Miller (Distance Ed Coordinator). The Blackboard Exemplary Course Program was created to identify and disseminate “effective practices for designing engaging online courses.” Standards were grouped by category: Course Design, Interaction & Collaboration, Assessment and Learner Support.
This volunteer activity permitted the team to gain knowledge in preparation for creating a Cypress College Distance Education Quality Rubric, which will be sent to administrators, faculty, and staff for review and approval this semester. The rubric will be used to create a new online teacher training course and provide documentation as to what we at Cypress College believe is an exemplary course. A meeting is scheduled for Friday, March 12, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., to collaborate and produce a review draft. Everyone is invited to attend. Please email Jeanne Miller for more information.
