Join your fellow faculty members for workshops and learn techniques that can improve student success in your classes. Our Mission College faculty have developed workshops designed to provide instructors with practical activities that can be used in the classroom. These break-out sessions cover techniques for engaging students, exploring threshold concepts for our individual disciplines, designing effective PowerPoint presentations, and transposing our key course concepts into easily accessible videos for students. Come enjoy breakfast and lunch and share ideas for our LAMC students' success!
