CALL FOR PRESENTERS - WLAC Spring 2010 Tech Fair

 

We are seeking presenters for the SPRING 2010 Tech Fair at West.  Workshops will take place in February, March, April, and May 2010.  

 

Presenters are asked to prepare for about one hour (about 45 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes of questions and answers).  The format is flexible.  The grants can fund $350 stipends to presenters for developing and presenting their workshop.  The real benefit, though, will be the faculty-to-faculty exchanges as we all learn more about what is possible in using technology in our courses and student services.

 

Click on the link below and fill out the presenter proposal form.

Deadline is Friday, January 15, 2010. Fill out your workshop description at http://tinyurl.com/TechFairCallSpring2010.

 

For questions or more information, contact Mary-Jo Apigo at apigomj@wlac.edu.

Tech Fair is sponsored by Title V Cooperative along with our cooperating partners, Harbor, Pierce, East, and Trade Tech

Flu Season Information

 

POTENTIAL CAMPUS CLOSURES: As advised by the Center for Disease Control and the Los Angeles Community College District administration, it is unlikely that the campus will close in the event of student or employee being diagnosed with the H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu). Instead, the campus will promote healthy practices on campus. However, Faculty/Students should be prepared to move into a distance learning format for class in the event that the instructor and/or a large number of students become ill. Faculty and students should be sure they have each other's respective contact information. Please do report any suspected/confirmed case of H1N1 (Swine Flu) to your supervisor/instructor. This information will be kept confidential.

Instructors do have the authority to ask students to leave the classroom who are clearly ill. This should be done discretely and students should be directed to the WLAC Health Center (A-9) -- Hours: M,W,Th 8:30am-5:00pm; T 10:30am-7:00pm; F 9:00am-12:00pm.
