The 2017 General Education Conference is coming to MC on Wednesday, March 22, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., BE building (room 151-152) on the Germantown Campus.

Register through ELITE! The conference is free, and professional development credit will be available through ELITE for all participants.

Alternate assignments are allowed if faculty miss classes to attend the conference. In addition, each attendee will receive a voucher and be able to choose a book related to the conference's topics.

As all General Education courses at Montgomery College are currently undergoing General Education re-certification, faculty attendees will receive detailed information and practical examples and skills of how to design class activities and assignments incorporating integrative learning, life skills, reflection, leadership and civic engagement as well as signature assignments to measure required competencies for outcomes assessment.

The Conference will start with the keynote speaker, Paul Hanstedt, professor of English at Roanoke College, author of <i>General Education Essentials: A Guide for College Faculty</i>, and general education consultant with the Association of American Colleges and Universities. He will present theoretical and practical information about how to design Gen Ed assignments, including signature assignments as well as shorter-term activities.

The mid-morning break-out sessions will focus on faculty sharing of gen-ed-related assignments and provide all faculty participants with specific feedback on their own assignments.

During a catered lunch, speaker David Hubert, assistant provost of learning advancement at Salt Lake Community College, will provide more specific information about signature assignments and other ways to measure student mastery of course and gen ed skills, including a discussion of e-portfolios. He will describe SLCC's use of signature assignments to measure gen ed course outcomes and its incorporation of e-portfolios - detailing the successes and challenges the faculty have faced along the way.

The early-afternoon break-out sessions will address how to incorporate gen ed elements into tight course plans as well as practical information about e-portfolios, outcomes assessment, and Gen Ed course transferability challenges.

Both full and part-time faculty are encouraged to attend. To help facilitate attendance at this all-day conference, Dr. Rai has approved faculty use of alternate assignments for their classes that day.

If you would like any further information regarding the Gen Ed Conference or the gen ed program, feel free to contact Sharon Anthony or Anestine Theophile-LaFond, co-chairs of the General Education Standing Committee.
