About Celebration of Learning

Celebration of Learning is a bi-annual event designed to help faculty and staff learn new ways to innovate, engage, collaborate and align with the college's goals inside and outside the classroom. The event kicks off with an opening session in the Performing Arts Center at the beginning of fall and spring semesters and is followed by a series of breakout sessions hosted by peers that focus on one of several tracks: Innovation, Engagement, Collaboration, and Alignment.

Following the holidays and before classes begin, spend two invigorating days with colleagues as we all learn more about college-wide issues and prepare for a meaningful and successful spring semester. You won’t want to miss the opening ceremony on Wednesday, January 9 when Dr. Quirk-Bailey leads a variety of speakers addressing ICC’s impact on students and the community in general. Breakout sessions will follow that will appeal to both faculty and staff and will cover technology, collaboration, updates, and social awareness.

If you’re a faculty member, you won’t want to sleep in on Thursday, January 10! Dr. Awuah is providing breakfast and inspiration at the Cougar Plex. You can burn off those calories immediately by participating in an interactive breakout session in the gym that involves maps, strategy, and collaboration. (No pirate costumes are required.) After department meetings, Dr. Theresa Regan will share her insights on autism. All faculty and staff are enthusiastically encouraged to attend. As a follow-up, we’ll have a breakout session on our student support services.

To end the week, we’ll head to the volleyball court and enjoy some laughs while faculty and staff attempt to set, bump, and spike their way to delayed muscle soreness for the weekend. We may even have a raffle for heating pads and Icy Hot!

Please, check out the schedule and join the ICC community begin 2019!
