Fall 2012 Kickoff Event: MAP to Student Success

Welcome back, faculty! 

This professional development workshop will kick off the semester with a great start. We will focus on the new Academic Foundations student assessment system: Multiple Assessment Placement (MAP). We will talk about new processes and policies, get hands on with a norming session, and have extended roundtable conversations about how to help our students succeed. We will also distribute course materials and sign contracts.
Morning coffee and lunch will be served. Adjunct faculty will be compensated for their attendance.
