Haidt; winter’s book is Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?: And Other Conversations about Race by Beverly Daniel Tatum, and this spring, it will be Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World --and Why Things Are Better Than You Think by Hans Roling. A limited number of free books are available for participants.
Tenure Track Faculty Group
If you are tenure-track faculty SCC, join a group to learn more about college processes, classroom issues and anything connected to student success. The facilitators are Bill Rambo and Angela Rasmussen.
The Nuts and Bolts of Course Design
If you are interested in the basics of course building - from designing assignments to engaging learners - this series focuses on all aspects of course design, particularly assignments, outcomes and the classroom. Whether you are new faculty looking to create a new course, or experienced faculty hoping to refresh parts of an existing course, join your colleagues for conversations about the basics.

This new group is designed specifically to support adjunct faculty at SCC – both new and returning adjuncts are invited to participate. Come with your questions, ideas, and concerns, or just to meet your fellow adjunct faculty members. Facilitators: Colette Wanke and Rabab Nemri.
