Full Workshop Descriptions  (in alphabetical order)

 

CCC Maker Initiatives:  Issues of Equity and Inclusion in Makerspaces

CCSF has strong, well established STEAM programs and a proven record of workforce innovation and industry partners. However, across our large urban college, a network of a main campus and 9 centers, we see gaps in connectivity in many areas. Students who are ethnically and gender diverse or socio-economically disadvantaged connect to STEAM pathways in lower numbers. Learn how to increase inclusion and prepare students for 21st century skills in fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathmatics by utilizing three new maker spaces, dubbed the MakerSPHERE. 

This workshop will also be available via live streaming:

Crossing the Border: Translation in the Classroom

This interactive workshop will demonstrate the theory and practice of literary translation as a way of integrating close reading and revision skills and of promoting cross cultural understanding. Given the unique diversity of our student body, let's bring our many languages together. We will model ways that multilingual students, who often feel disadvantaged, can use their native languages as an academic resource.

 

Curriculum Overview and Working Session

Brief overview of curriculum workflow, requirements, and how it all fits together. Includes the purpose and major aspects of course outlines, program outlines, and distance education addenda. Hands-on practice working on curriculum submissions in CurricUNET for those just getting started and those who need help with specific questions about using CurricUNET.

 

Cyber Security Live Webinar

This will be a live webinar on how to protect personal identifiable information (PII), such as dates of birth and social security numbers, in the internet age.

Agenda:

  • Cyber Risk for education – Common patterns, unique exposures
  • Current cyber claims our team is managing for education clients – here we will discuss real incidents
  • Breach prevention (this is where we will discuss emailing PII, etc.)
  • Some discussion on ransomware and social engineering prevention
  • Incident reporting (including do’s and don’ts, chronology of an incident, etc.)
  • Employee awareness and education
  • Q&A

 

Effectively Using the CA UndocuCollege Guide & Equity Tool to Support Undocumented Students (E4FC)

Designed to expose colleges and universities to innovative institutional models of success that reduce educational roadblocks and improve the campus climate for undocumented students at their school; elevate the challenges CA institutions are facing across systems that prevent academic success to raise awareness for collective solutions; and provide a better understanding of how the UndocuCollege Guide Equity Tool will help schools effectively analyze and increase the level of support currently present at their institutions.


Energy Management

This workshop will focus on how to re-charge and conserve your energy for the tasks that are important to you. We will cover different Tai Chi movements, learn the principles of meditation, perform breathing exercise, and practice physical movements that help us to recharge.  Finally, we will discuss tricks on how to handle stressful situations that take away your energies.

 

Fire Extinguisher Training

We are happy to offer City College, a power point presentation about fire safety in the home, consisting of escape planning, what to do if you are trapped by a fire, basic fire safety skills, the top causes of fire in the home and how to prevent them, smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, fire extinguishers, earthquake awareness, and a summary on our earthquake preparedness program NERT.  The presentation will include hands-on fire extinguisher training using an indoor electronic simulator.

 

Get to Know AFT 2121

Find out the basics of your union.  Who represents you?  What's a bargaining unit? What are your rights in our contract? How do you get the help you need if you have a problem? How do you read your paycheck? What is collective bargaining, and how can you be a part of it?  Come and have your questions answered. This workshop is specifically designed for recently hired faculty, but is open to all.

 

Interactive, Inclusive and Engaging Activities for Diverse Student Learners: Practical Strategies

Join us to learn hands-on activities from the first CCSF cohort of the online ACUE course in Effective Teaching Practices. We will share strategies in small groups, using the GIFT format (Great Ideas for Teaching), with a focus on practical strategies such as using mobile phones to gauge student participation, strategies for engaging more students in discussion, motivation strategies, notetaking strategies and more! Faculty presenting strategies come from diverse disciplines, including Math, Biology, Chemistry, CTE, Political Science, Communication Studies and more!

 

Introduction to Student Learning Outcomes at CCSF

This workshop is designed to teach new and existing employees about the SLO process at CCSF.  We will review how to identify the SLOs for courses and programs, and how to submit an assessment report using CurricUNET.  Need to review the SLO process to make your end-of-semester reporting easier this semester? Join us! Want to find ways to make assessment more meaningful? We will talk about that too! New faculty member? Get your semester off to a great start by planning your assessment with us in this workshop!

 

Making Your Canvas Materials Accessible

This will be a hands-on workshop on making your course materials in Canvas accessible for students with disabilities and a little easier to use for many other people. Topics include: adding descriptions to images in Microsoft Word, PDF and Canvas pages; working with scanned documents; adding text headers in Canvas; adding link text in Canvas; embedding Films on Demand, Kanopy and other captioned videos into Canvas; and getting videos captioned. Instructors who are planning on teaching online are highly encouraged to attend. It would be helpful to have a Canvas login but not necessary.

 

Non-adversarial Problem Solving Model for CCSF

Over 200 colleges nationwide have instituted volunteer based conflict resolution services for staff and students. CCSF, as the largest community college in the state can become the standard bearer for peaceful, non-adversarial approach to conflict. A former CCSF task force has developed a proposal that provides cost effective, peaceful resolution for CCSF based conflicts that respects diversity and promotes open communication, trust and collaboration.

Come to learn what it is, how it can help with a variety of work-life problems and strategize how to get this project off the ground.

 

Quick Warmers to Get Students Talking

Warmers play a clear, pedagogical role. Use these 5 minute warmers to get full student participation, help students relax, focus them, and activate their knowledge.They can also be used for review or topic introduction, and are useful for classroom management issues such as dealing with late students and setting up your first activity.

 

Respirator Protection (CCR Title 8 Section 5144)

Required annual training for faculty and staff who use CARTRIDGE respirators (Buildings & Grounds, Ceramics, Autobody, etc.). This is NOT REQUIRED for N95 (particulate filtering facepiece) use. See https://www.dir.ca.gov/title8/5144.html.

 

Sleep Management - A Holistic Approach

Sleep Management is essential for everyone. Learn what sleep is all about. Something that takes up one third of our lives should be worth knowing about. Learn how to fall asleep, get restful sleep, and wake up with the energy you need for a productive day.

 

Spotlight on Library Resources: Images, Films, and Music for ALL Disciplines

Have you ever wanted to use media in your class lectures and curriculum, but don’t know how to find it or give your students access to it? CCSF Librarians can help! With databases like ARTstor and Films on Demand, you, too can make your courses more engaging for students. Don’t believe your discipline could possibly benefit from media? Bring your topics and questions to this workshop and challenge librarians who are ready to show you the possibilities of incorporating media into your classes.

 

The Path to Teaching Online at CCSF

A spring 2017 audit by the Department of Education showed CCSF's online teaching program to be a model for other schools. Training and review by distance learning and alternate media specialists produce quality courses. Learn how to get on the path to be an online teacher. This session will clarify the steps needed to propose, get training and approval for, build, and deliver an online course. The timeline for all this plus Curriculum Committee requirements will also be covered.

 

Unbury Me!

Vehicles for Thought: Mindmaps, Sketchnotes, and Fostering Visual Learning in the Classroom

Looking for new ways to engage students and deepen their critical thinking skills and retention? Based on research from her recent sabbatical, Alisa will offer some visual vehicles for thinking (and reading, studying, and writing). Geared toward teachers and tutors working with students on reading and those interested in integrating more creativity, this workshop will include samples and adaptable classroom resources—plus hands-on practice. No drawing skills required.

 

What data is available to you on campus and How can it work for you?

This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity to learn more about the CCSF students in your class or program to foster student success. The Office of Research and Planning will provide an overview of data resources available to faculty, administrators and staff. Come prepared with questions and learn about the tools to access data that can help you find answers. Join us for a guided exploration addressing both what data are available and how to make meaning of it.
