Session 1: An Introduction to Cooperative Learning
9:00 - 4:00 / 215 Penfield
Presenter: Dean Kristin Croyle
Remote access: https://zoom.us/my/celt1
Cooperative learning is an instructional approach where students work together in small groups to improve their own learning, and each other's learning, through the instructor's thoughtful design of learning experiences in the classroom.  Application of cooperative learning principles in class can increase student performance and enjoyment of class as well as increasing student attendance and retention. If you have struggled with having students work together, with some students doing almost all of the work and some doing almost none, this session will provide you with the tools to structure student group work so that all students are engaged, contributing, learning, and building cooperative relationships with their peers.

These projects can increase student engagement and motivation, provide authentic learning experiences, and can help reduce the incentives for academic dishonesty.

Every search should be viewed as a strategic opportunity to enhance our faculty and professional staff, increase our campus diversity, embrace our institutional mission and realize our institutional vision. There are several steps that must be taken prior to the onset of any search. The successful outcome of any search has its foundation in the preparation that occurs prior to posting the job vacancy announcement/long advertisement.

On November 30, Adobe software licensing changed from a serial number based model to a named user model.  This new model includes a new means of installing and entitling employees to the applications. The Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop App is used to uninstall old serial number based software and install the new named user software which requires authentication using your SUNY Oswego credentials.  In this workshop, we will discuss the licensing changes for SUNY Oswego owned employee and computer lab devices as well as personal devices. We will also demonstrate the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop App.
