Who is CCCOnline?
CCCOnline is an extension of and a service to 13 Colorado Community Colleges offering students another learning option and greater access to a community college education.
Who do we train?
We offer training and professional development to more than 300 CCCOnline adjunct faculty and staff.
We also provide training to faculty and staff from the 13 affiliated colleges.
Face To Face
Faculty Wiki and Tutorials
Before teaching Faculty are expected to complete
In their first year after hire, faculty must complete
More Online Workshops
Faculty must earn one training credit a year but method is up to them and their Chair
Other Asynchronous Workshops we offer:
Measuring What Matters
Face to Face Sessions are rarely offered due to greater cost and difficulty finding a central location, loading computers, and time. Used only when a big move occurs and large masses must be trained quickly
Webinars are offered on timely topics like Plagiarism, Making Interactive Mind-Maps, Web 2.0 technology. Attendance earns credit, but these are recorded for faculty who can’t attend or return to when needed.
Tutorials and Interactive Learning Objects
Just in time training available while faculty are in workshops and anytime on the wiki
Some Objects include
Technical skills to complete teaching tasks like using gradebook
All new hires are assigned a Mentor who also teaches that course to offer advice and field questions
When we move to a new LMS we hire faculty volunteers to mentor faculty in a department on the technical aspects of the new LMS
